US Nationals Jan. 18-27, 2019 - returning to Detroit (25 years later)

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

US Nationals Jan. 18-27, 2019 - returning to Detroit (25 years later)

What does everyone remember about the 1994 US Nationals in Detroit? Is it that the pros were returning to amateur competition? Most likely it is "the whack", especially after the reminder from the movie "I, Tonya". This month the US Nationals return to Detroit.

This story provides memories of some of those who were there: https://olympics.nbcsports.com/2019/01/ ... aAfpN7rOMg

Oh yes, the memories! Life goes on and off we go into the National Championships and later the Worlds. Bring it on - hopefully only great performances.

That was certainly an awful moment. I'll never forget it (shudders). Hopefully this Detroit championship goes a lot better! Hopefully I can see some of it as well as Canadians.
