I know that MK practiced on Sunday, because there are pics of her on yahoo. I have not been able to find anything about the ladies practices. Any news?

In her report on SkateRadio, Kelly said that she hadn't seen Michelle yet but that she (Kelly) was going togo to her first ladies practice tomorrow morning. Hopefully she'll have some good notes for us!

Isn't Karin at Worlds? I can't remember. If so, does anyone know if she will be giving us reports? *fingers crossed*

She said she landed 2 out of three 3/3's attempted in the practice.

Rene -- I believe Karin is going to Worlds next year in Canada. ;-)

Here's Kelly's full ladies practice report:

<!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote>Quote:<hr> Day 3 Tuesday, March 28, 2000

Ladies' Short Program Practice

Anna Rechnio looked very strong - great jumps. Landed a 3toe3toe. Sabine Wojtala's jumps also looked good; she gets nice height. Also landed a 3toe3toe. Mojca Kopac looked a little off today, as did Jennifer Robinson, who kept singling or doubling her 3loop. There was also an Oriental girl in this group who couldn't land a jump for the life of her, until the very end, when she landed a 2axel2toe. She had decent presentation and pretty good spirals, though.

Next group: Alisa Drei had a decent practice. Didn't do any jumps in the RT, but later landed a couple 3toe3toes and a 3lutz. Helena Pajovic managed a few 3sals and 3toes. Olga Vassilieva and an unknown-to-me Chinese(?) girl had moderate success with their jumps.

The Americans were also in this group. Wow, did Sarah Hughes cut her hair short - it's shorter than Kwan's now. She landed her 3toe3loop on the first try, but it took her a while to land the 3sal3loop (she kept doing just the salchow). Her other jumps were fine. Michelle Kwan was rock solid on all her jumps and landed 2 out of 3 3toe3toes she tried. I gave her her good-luck messages after practice. Angela Nikodinov was also rock solid; I didn't see her miss anything.

Those are the only ladies' groups I saw. I'm off to Monaco now...<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END-->

Kelly just added notes from the afternoon practice as well:

<!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote>Quote:<hr> Saw the American girls practice again this afternoon. Angela looked a little off, but the other two were even more solid than this morning.
Gave Sarah her good-luck messages, and Tim was there watching, so I gave him his. Diana Poth wore her famous swimsuit to practice. She actually landed some nice combos, including a 3lutz2toe2loop. Julia Sebestyen had HUGE jumps and almost landed a 3loop3loop. Tatiana Malinina was there (she skipped this morning), but it took her a couple tries to land anything. Elena Liashenko was a no-show here. Vanessa Gusmeroli had a so-so practice.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END-->

BTW. Captcanada will be at worlds also. She said she does not
have access to a computer, but will definitely file reports about Mk
and post it at MKF as soon as she comes back.

If you were Tim, I sincerely hope you would be worrying about your own practices so you can crawl up a few placements and help us qualify for 3 mens spots at next year's worlds! LOL

I think Tim is hoping some of MK's consistancy will rub off on him by watching her practice <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON STOP-->

GREAT for MK<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON STOP--> ! LOL about Tim...I'm sorry, but I thoroughly believe that he likes her. I'd be surprised at this point if he DOESN'T, and I'm serious.

What's up with Irina? I've seen nothing. And any Maria news? All I heard before was that she had a clean SP RT, but that was days ago.

I am extremely to hear that Michelle is skating so well in practice; I believe in my heart that she will be glorious. Good luck!

To Jenny and Googoo, Karin is not at the world championships at the present; she left earlier than planned to visit with her parents and relatives. However, I believe that she will be watching the ladies' freeskate.

LOL AYS!

Hmmm, I wonder why no news on the Russians? I love Viktoria's skating style and while she isn't artistic like Michelle or Sarah, she has gorgeous jumps. I wish her all the luck as well! GO VIKTORIA!!!!!!!
