Congrats to Rachael on graduating. Seems like just yesterday she was graduating high school and deferring college for a year to chase after her Olympic dream which she actually achieved. So proud of her!

New picture. Must say, I love the lipstick matching her scarf! And she is definitely getting more mature looking. She will always be adorably cute, but more and more as a young woman. http://oi62.tinypic.com/2mzdqph.jpg

That picture does her no justice. I went to college with her and she's beyond gorgeous in person (and even nicer when you talk to her, especially when you bring up FS).

Very petty of me to point out, but she doesn't have that valley girl talk/accent I usually associate younger Californians with which makes her 1000% more attractive to me even though I pitch for the pink team.

Flatt left coastal San Diego at age eight when her family relocated to Boulder, Colorado, and then eventually moved to Colorado Springs for skating. She only returned to CA as a resident when she attended Stanford. Not much chance to develop a SoCal "valley girl" accent. ;-)

She looks lovely. I remember when so many figure skating fans were harping about how "fat" and out of shape Rachael was when she was competing, especially during "Tibia-gate". People can be pretty mean and harsh. I'm glad she learned to rise above it all and not pay attention to the negativity and the haters.

So ... if I am reading this tweet correctly, seems that Rachael will be part of the on-air team both for NBC and for Universal Sports for TEB? :cool:

ETA (on Nov 12), clarification:
I guess Rachael meant only Universal Sports. She is not part of NBC's on-air team for TEB.

I was wondering whether Tara and Johnny's roles in coverage of the dog show would affect their involvement in NBC's TEB coverage.
(My understanding is that the dog show takes place this weekend, and NBC's coverage then will air on Thanksgiving Day.)

Extrapolating from Rachael's tweet, I have a feeling that W/L will not take part in NBC's TEB coverage??

ETA (on Nov 11):
Maybe I speculated too soon. Johnny's website shows the dog show coverage as well as TEB coverage. Not physically impossible to do both, but it will be a busy weekend.

Sorry, I did speculate too soon. NBC's on-air team for TEB = Weir/Lipinski/Belbin. Plus Wilson on the ground in France. No Gannon this week. (Source: the NBC press release from Nov 11 at the link above)​

In any case, good luck to Angela :yay: and Max :yay:.

She should be kind to Angela! After all, Rachael choreographed her SP!

Oh wonderful! I had no idea Rachael was coaching!

I know that Rachael has been involved in coaching at the World Arena during her summer breaks from Stanford -- via photos and/or video of her helping Max as well as at least one much younger skater.

But I had not seen Rachael officially listed as a coach in an IN bio -- until Angela's.

New off-copy image of Rachael from a calendar she's on, was referred by Twitter. Man, I wish I could get a better copy, or buy an original calendar, 'cause this is a new side of the always adorably cute Rachael! Here's to the Beautiful Buff Babe! http://oi67.tinypic.com/mkchuv.jpg
