Skating Updates

 Caydee Denney and Jeremy Barrett have withdrawn from 4 Continents due to a training accident that left Jeremy needing 42 stitches. They will be replaced by Mary Beth Marley and Rockne Brubaker.

Maia and Alex Shibutani are blogging about 4 Continents for IceNetwork - here is the first of their blogs.

Recently it has come to light that the ages of some Chinese skaters are different on some documents than their ISU biographies. Sui and Han and Zhang and Zhang are among the listed skaters with age discrepancies. Here's an Icenetwork article about it and another article

Sarah and Drew spoke to Andrew Johnson, Ashley Wagner, and Joshua Farris about the injuries and illnesses they had at Nationals. I cannot understand why Joshua was allowed to compete with the torn abductor muscle, let alone the allergic reaction the day before the freeskate.
