    cianni, I'm not trying to discourage you from talking to the skaters or reporting on their practices. I'm just sharing what I've observed from talking to young skaters, parents and coaches over the years -- that many of them are not aware that what they say privately could end up being quoted or paraphrased on the 'net as "on the record" remarks.

    Thanks

    I did talk to Kimmie today. She is a really sweet kid and she did tell about her way of competing meaning how she approaces the comps. I will continue to watch her and let it go at that. I will say she is doing well she is young and if she keeps improving she will be a force to to be reckoned with. I do think she is the upcoming star.

    Cianni, everything you report is on the positive side, and everyone here is supportive of all of these youngsters. (It's only when they get to be rich and famous that we start picking on them, LOL.) Anyway, I please keep on with the practice reports, and we will take into account Sylvia's warning that allowances must be made for youthful enthusiasm and inexperience.

    Hi Cianni. I LOVE these practice reports!! Please keep them coming. In my view anyway, it is not your responsibility to keep your views or anyone's comments private, unless they ask you to. I respectfully disagree with Sylvia who seems to be asking you to censor yourself. What you see and hear publicly in a rink is.....seen and heard publicly. I hope you don't feel any personal responsibility to censor what Kimmie or any other skater (or team) is NOT censoring.

    Mean time, I welcome any news you care to share!!

    Thanks

    Thanks for responding MM and Doggygirl. I will report as I know Im dying to read reports of other skaters as well. I can say Kimmie as I have said before is a calm laid back young lady. I find her to be able to be quite casual in her manner. We talked for about 10min. and I asked her if she had done a 3axel 3toe and she said yes, she can land it if the axel goes well. I wanted her to know I thought that was great and wanted to be supportive of her. She will go for the 2 3/3s if the practices go well the wk of the comp.Thats why she went for it at Nationals she had been hitting it that wk. She will play it by ear as she says.She is practicing these jumps and doing well. Today I saw her hit 5 clean 3 axels and 6or7 misses. WE talked of other things and she is very complementry of other skaters. I see other skaters there that are quite good but we dont get to see them as we only see the top6 and we talked about that. She is quite delightful to talk to and knows if she doesnt get to the olys this time she has 4 more yrs. Tim was there but not skating at this session. Tiffany Scott is practicing with a new partner and she is very nice also. Havent seen Sarah Hughes yet so maybe she is in the back arena at night . I will learn the other skaters names eventually and I do see them on occ. Wier is at the Pond and I think he has the Ice to himself but havent found out yet when he skates. I would like to see him practice and I will sooner or later. Will keep posting.
