Both of our pair teams skated great!! Felicia and Nate had a clean program (at the Olympics)-way to go guys! And Marissa and Simon skated great and ended up in the top 10 in 9th place-awesome for them!
We’re all proud of you guys- you rock! That’s our team physician Jen Burke and one of our team leaders, John Millier sitting next to me.
It was exciting to attend the medal ceremony as our team received their bronze medals!
Jason and Evan take time to sign a series of U.S. Figure Skating team photos. Jason spread them out in an organized manner all over the floor for easier signing.
I think I can bring one home for each of my nieces (Hi Madeline, Anna and Audrey!).

In the airport in Munich waiting to board our USA chartered plane to Sochi.
Here’s Marissa, Jeremy and Simon!
On our plane-we had a lot of room to stretch out. We shared the plane with other US athletes from speed skating, luge, freestyle skiing and biathalon.The plane carried all of the athletes gear (skis, luge sleds, figure skates don’t take up a lot of room, and the guns and ammunition of the biathalon team!).
Here’s everyone getting all their gear off the plane. And Marissa and Simon. He’s one of the tallest athletes at the games this year at 6’4″ and she’s one of the shortest at 5 feet.
