I think Kimani Griffin skated outstanding and propably the most conistant of any other skater at nationals, BUT I have to say that Jonathan Blair does things on skates that most good speed skaters will never dream of doing. He made me saw WOW a few times this nationals. Cant forget Harry Vogel as well. He had quite a few very nice races– skatingby in Best National Performances???

USARS did a great job with the LIVE FEED once again. Thanks to Ross Creveling who kept that hopping with all of his interviews, to Bob Justice who never stopped to take a breath and kept us on the edge of our seats. To the staff that works behind the scenes printing out ALL of those RECORDS!!!!!!!! To the skaters who kept their cool…. and even to those who did not! You were all entertaining! To SEND THE BEST (Martha Polston and gang) who put on a WONDERFUL dinner and dance later on… and to those who supported the dinner and the 50/50!!– Linda Wood in IDN Video and Photos
