That would be me. My name is Jen, I'm a twelve year old who
lives in California. In the fall I'll be starting eighth grade.
I've been interested in figure skating since...hmmmm...about 1992
when I was six, watching the Olympics. I used to skate but I don't
anymore. It's really hard, you don't know until you try it :) So
I guess I respect all skaters a lot because of that. The sports
I like to play include volleyball and soccer.
My thoughts on skating
Among my favorite pairs teams are Tiffany and Johnnie, of course,
and Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze. I have a website
about them here.
I can't really say which I prefer; it's hard to compare because B&S
are already World Champs and S&S are just coming out of juniors. Also
Kazakova and Dmitriev are great. In singles, I love to watch
Michelle Kwan, Katia Gordeeva (G&G were my favorite), Todd Eldredge,
and Elena Sokolova. I think Elena's going to be a champion someday.
She's so fun to watch, like S&S. I guess it's a trait of younger
skaters. Michael Weiss is somewhat inconsistent, but he's a
classic skater - has the lines and edges like Boitano. In dance,
I like Bourne and Kraatz's Riverdance program because of the momentum.
Their other programs are ok but not as good as Riverdance. I also
get a kick out of watching Krylova and Ovsiannakov. Their skating is
great but when I watch them skate Carmen I can't enjoy it until
I get over fearing for Oleg's life!
