Some interviews/articles of possible interest...

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.

Thanks Elizabeth. Very interesting read about life after Olympics. When your entire being is dedicated to a single goal, you've achieved that goal, what's next? And even more fundamentally, who am I now?

The article reminded me of a few skaters who have really struggled to move on. These days it is so difficult for athletes to succeed without devoting all their energy, physical and emotional, to their sport.
