Thank you, Alex D! I'm so glad Brooklee finally has a fan fest! I'd contemplated taking it on myself at one point, but I just didn't think I had the time or knowledge to do her justice. :)

Brooklee at Nationals, preperation

Brooklee is going to skate her short at nationals on the 3th. of December. The Seniors competition will start at 19:45 local (Penrith - New South Wales). If I am not mistaken, its just an hour drive from Sydney, maybe less - it´s been a while. :thumbsup:

She has to skate in the first group, which I hope will not be a disadvantage for her.

One of her latest quotes,

On this day of Thanksgiving I realize how much I have to be grateful for. I am thankful for all the support of my friends and family and all of the experiences, both challenging and exciting, I have had over the past year. They have helped shape me into the person I am today. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Good Luck Brooklee!

There are only two groups, it's not usually a problem.

Technically, Penrith is part of Sydney, but it is a fair way out from the CBD.

We had a chat earlier, she has only good words for her former coaching team and other Australian skaters and loves it here at Oberstdorf and could finally see the cows. ;)

Today I have finished the part about Brooklee in my column, I will copy paste it here, once the whole thing is finished (at the end of the week). We also spoke about the coaching change and her future plans, I am sure it will be an interesting read. She is as I said earlier, a wonderful person to talk to, very different to Kailani, but not less charming.

For now, I have two videos for you

I took them from the thread by Doris, I hope it´s ok to repost them here.

Brooklee at Nebelhorn Trophy 2016

2.1 "I have very short waist"

What surprised me though, was how open minded one lady was, about a small problem with finding nice dresses, Brooklee Han. For her, having a "very short waist", as she said, causes quite some problems and so it was, that her long program dress arrived on Saturday morning and she put it on and it worked! Han´s dresses are designed by a lady in Salt Lake City - UT, Elena Pollak and as she mentioned the goal is to make her look a bit longer and less like just one line, which can be a bit hard, as she noted, so that the dresses need to be tailored in a very specific way.
The young Australian came 11th with 121.26 points, in a just 15 skaters strong field that sadly lost two very fine Ladies with Emmi prior to the short and Isa who went on the ice Saturday morning, but sadly had to leave almost instantly again, as her back injury was to severe to continue.

To continue young Brooklee want´s of course and her big goal are the Olympics 2018 and Oberstdorf is, as she said, an event with only positive memories for her, as this is the place where she qualified last time in 2013 and also where she practiced, between the opening ceremony and competition at Sochi. To achieve this goal, Brooklee left her old coach Serhil Vaypan after about 9 years, but not with regrets, as she noted.

" I am grateful for all the things he helped me achieve, he took me as a kid when I could barely land a single Axel up to the Olympics and I know, I couldn´t have done that, without him."

Her new coaching team, consists of Darlene and Peter Cain, who also offer advice to Amber Glenn and Ashley Cain and I have to admit, that I was listening a little bit into their practice conversations and I find it super charming how he is giving her advice in a very kind and supportive way and right now, both are working on a triple toe combination and polish her double Axel - triple Toe, an element we could already witness at her LP. Said program, "a dream within a dream", shows Brooklee how she wakes up in a dream at a ball in a trancy, enchanting environment in which she is dancing and towards the end, the spell breaks and she wakes up, with a sad mood, while trying to hold on to her dream.

Han, who has always been a skater that offered a huge intensity with her programs, noted, that it would be something that she always had as a kid, but lost a little bit when she became a junior.

"When I was little, it´s something I had a lot of, while I struggled technically wise compared to the other kids and when I moved on to juniors and started adding more difficult elements like the triples, I lost the presentation skills a little bit, but now that I am more comfortable with the elements, I am more free again and it allows me sell and express the programs."

I don´t know about you guys, but I think she is doing a damn fine job there! Another fine job she does by promoting the sport for her country, while being respectful and supportive to other skaters. Brooklee, noted how Kailani Craine, pushed her and that there is a young Holly Harris, who could become the future of Australian figure skating and is having a great year already and how she would be very happy to see their new juniors pair to maybe qualify for the Olympics next year.

Brooklee, who is a German Studies Major will keep on supporting Australian Figure Skating, with her big heart and open minded personality and now that I met both of these beautiful Aussie ladies, I am also looking forward to the last one, Holly, at the Junior GP at Dresden.

Brooklee has announced her retirement from Competitive Skating to pursue future options in journalism or one day becoming a coach and technical specialist.
We will miss her.
