At the 2008 U.S. Figure Skating National Championships, the medalist in the women’s even were not eligible for worlds because of their age. Seriously….I found this out and this is just plain stupid of the USFSA to allow women, not even women, girls, just girls, to compete at this level and then they aren’t even eligible to compete for the U.S. on a world stage. Really!!?? They need to go back into their rules for the Senior women rules qualifications and change them!! I’m curious to know where

Emily Hughes  was?? She did not compete….and as for Kimmie Meissner ….she might of throughout withdrawing, cause the World Champion finished 7th in the Women’s Senior event.

Sasha Cohen
I also wonder what long time competitor Sasha Cohen is up to….she isn’t competition…but why not?? Just look at what is left to be represented at a national level….that’s just embarrassing for anyone in the figure skating world. I’ll be the first to admit that she is not the most consistent skater in the world….but no one can compare to her skating style….she is unique in her own fashion, and you cannot take your eyes off of her when she is on the ice.  

If you want to check out the results and scores from the 2008 US National Figure Skating Championships…..click here. And I also hate how you have to find any information about the competitions in the US by going through a site called icenetworkd.com
