E o patinoare iubita aici pe forum si cred ca merita si ea un thread doar al ei.
Eu personal o admir pentru eleganta si naturalete si imi plac la nebunie spiralele si piruetele ei:ok:

Alissa Czisny (born June 25, 1987) is an American figure skater. She is the 2010–2011 Grand Prix Final champion, two-time (2009, 2011) U.S. national champion, the 2007 bronze medalist, and two-time (2005, 2010) Skate Canada champion.
Czisny began skating at age 1½ when she and her sister Amber accompanied their mother to the ice skating rink because they didn't want to stay at home with the babysitter.
Czisny first gained international attention in 2005 when she won the gold medal at the 2005 Skate Canada International and silver at the 2005 Skate America. She qualified for the 2005–2006 Grand Prix Final and placed sixth. She went on to the 2006 U.S. Championships in St. Louis, where she finished seventh overall.
Czisny began the 2006–07 season at the 2006 Skate Canada International where she placed fourth. She also competed at the 2006 Cup of Russia in November. At the 2007 U.S. Championships she was in fifth after the short program, but went on to win the free skate to win the bronze medal and the final U.S. spot to the 2007 World Championships in Tokyo, Japan. At the World Championships, she finished 15th.
Czisny finished third at the 2008 Skate Canada International in the 2008–09 Grand Prix series behind Joannie Rochette and Fumie Suguri. At the 2009 U.S. Championships, she won the short program by over five points. She finished third in the long program but won the gold medal due to her lead from the short. Czisny won her first national title, ahead of Rachael Flatt and Caroline Zhang. She earned her second trip to the Four Continents and the World Championships, in which she finished ninth and eleventh, respectively.
In the 2009–10 Grand Prix season, Czisny placed fourth at the 2009 Rostelecom Cup and won the silver medal at the 2009 Skate Canada International. Her short program score of 63.52 was the fourth highest of this ISU Grand Prix season, only surpassed by Yu-Na Kim (two scores) and Joannie Rochette. Czisny placed tenth at the 2010 U.S. Championships; as a result, she did not make the Olympic team and financial support to help cover her mid-five-figure training expenses was cut. She also found out her sister had cancer (in remission as of 2011). Czisny considered retiring but her mentors Brian Boitano and Linda Leaver encouraged her to continue.
In February 2010, she left coach Julianne Berlin, who had coached her for twelve years. In May, she said she would remain at the Detroit Skating Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, with new coaches Yuka Sato and Jason Dungjen. She reworked her jump technique with the help of her new coaches, who also helped her with her mental approach.[10] She noted, "I finally realized that my results in skating didn't define who I am as a person."
Czisny began the 2010–11 season by winning the 2010 Skate Canada International, her first gold medal on the Grand Prix series since winning 2005 Skate Canada. She also won Midwestern Sectionals, qualifying her to compete at US Nationals in 2011. She won bronze at her second Grand Prix event, 2010 Trophée Eric Bompard, which combined with her Skate Canada result qualified her for the Grand Prix Final.
At the 2010–2011 Grand Prix Final, Czisny won the short program with 63.76 points and placed third in the long program with a new personal best of 116.99 points. She won her first Grand Prix Final title with a new personal best combined total of 180.75 points. At the 2011 U.S. Championships, Czisny placed second in the short program with 62.50, and then placed first in the free skate with 128.74, giving her a combined total of 191.24 to win the gold. She thus won her second national gold medal, finishing 7.86 points ahead of the defending champion Rachael Flatt.It was the first time since Michelle Kwan's ninth win in 2005 that a ladies' single skater won more than one U.S. national title. She placed fifth at the 2011 World Championships, her best ever result at the event. During the off-season, she skated in a number of shows.
In the 2011–2012 season, Czisny is assigned to 2011 Skate America and 2011 Trophée Eric Bompard as her Grand Prix events.

Skating technique
Unlike most skaters, Czisny spins and jumps clockwise. She is known for her excellent spins. She said, "When I was younger, my sister and I always practiced our spins together. We would spin for hours, seeing who could hold their spin longer and/or who could spin faster. We also tried to come up with as many variations as possible." Of the jumps, Czisny is least confident on the triple salchow, which she did not perform in competition since 2005, but plans to attempt it in the 2011–2012 season.
[edit]Personal life

Czisny has taken ballet lessons from a young age to improve her flexibility and strength. Her fraternal twin sister, Amber, was also a figure skater who retired due to injuries and became a coach and choreographer.
Czisny is a summa cum laude graduate of Bowling Green State University where she was on a full academic scholarship and majored in international studies, French and Russian. She took online classes due to her skating. She also wants to learn Japanese. She was one of four up-and-coming figure skaters featured on the 2006 TLC series, Ice Diaries. Czisny is a vegetarian and a Christian. In 2011, she made a brief appearance in a Super Bowl commercial for Chrysler and Detroit, and then starred in Chrysler's Perseverance video.

Bravo, Oana!
Acum am realizat si eu ca nu avea un thread si imi pare rau ca pana acum in calitate de fana nu m-am gandit sa ii deschid. Dar ma bucur ca l-ai deschis tu, o sa fiu pe aici cat se poate de des. Si ii doresc Alissei multe reusite in sezonul asta ca doar acum avem si unde sa o laudam:)

mi-e teama de cum se va prezenta la nationale.am tot vanat articole sau filmari cu ea toata vara si degeaba. abia acum a aparut primul articol, foarte rezervat in declaratii, si am vazut-o patinand la un show dar nu am vazut-o sarind desi oficial a sarit 2A si 3T. imi pare rau ca dupa atat munca a avut acest ghinion cu accidentarea pentru ca ar fi avut nevoie de un al doilea sezon bun in care sa profite de imaginea creata in primul. nu cred ca va prinde top 5 la nationale si cel mai mult mi-e teama ca va avea parte de o retragere gen Rachael Flatt, adica cum e mai rau.

O vest f trista:( : Alissa a suferit ieri, in timpul antrenamentelor, o dislocare de sold si a fost dusa de urgenta la spital si operata. Cel mai probabil ea va pierde Nationalele si implicit participarea la Mondiale, din pacate un sezon complet ratat pt Alissa:nope:

13th January 2013, 21:23
Mai mult ca sigur rateaza totul. 3-6 luni de recuperare urmeaza pentru ea, ce ghinion :(

15th January 2013, 14:29
Ce ghinion pentru Alissa! :sad:. E ca si cu Laura Lepisto!

Ce ghinion pentru Alissa! :sad:. E ca si cu Laura Lepisto!

Amanadoua sunt patinatoare foarte fragile si subtiri si da, din pacate au urmat cam aceeasi traiectorie, dupa ce au atins un varf de forma si au avut realizari, imediat dupa au aparut accidentarile si unele destul de serioase.
Eu nici nu am avut curaj sa sper ca Alissa va participa la nationale, avand in vedere ca nu exista nicio dovada a formei in care se afla, daca poate sau nu sari. Cu atat mai putin speram sa fie pe podium. Dar nu ma impacam nici cu gandul ca nu o voi mai vedea deloc si apoi auzisem ca si-a pastrat SP ul acela superp pe La vie en rose si rochita aia minunata iar LP ul coregrafiat de Marina Zoueva ma facea tare curioasa.
Speranta mea a indraznit sa apara fix in momentul in care a si murit. Adica dupa ce am vazut SP ul si o parte din LP (pe Gone with the wind!!! de-ar fi fost sa aleg o persoana sa patineze pe muzica asta, ea ar fi fost. i se potriveste sloganul "e si maine o zi") si am vazut ce bine i-au iesit sariturile, piruetele au ramas la fel de bune si parca patina mult mai lejer. Totul pana la nenorocita de accidentare, pe care bine ca nu au prins-o pe filmare.:(

Alissa se retrage de la campionatele regionale (sectional), deci de la Nationale, deci de la intreg sezonul. :(

20th November 2013, 21:20
Am sperat ca un miracol se va intampla se va recupera dupa interventia chirurgicala si se va califica pentru Olimpiada. :(

21st November 2013, 21:43
Eu recunosc ca n-am mai sperat nimic. Ca sa nu fiu dezamagita. Credeam insa ca va veni la nationale si in cel mai fericit caz ar fi prins un top 10. Ar fi fost momentul ei de adio. Dureros este ca nu a avut acest moment. Eu nu am apucat sa imi iau la revedere de la ea.M-am resemnat cu gandul ca ea nu va mai fi cea dinainte dar ... voiam sa ii vad programele. Nu pot sa cred ca in sfarsit cineva a ales sa patineze pe Gone with the wind, si a fost tocmai ea, patinatoarea mea de suflet, si nu am apucat sa vad decat inceputul pana la momentul accidentarii de anul trecut care i-a pus capat carierei. Voiam sa vad acel program chiar si numai cu sarituri duble:(. Sper ca macar tot ceea ce a facut ea pt patinaj sa fi meritat, sa fie multumita chiar daca nu a ajuns la nicio olimpiada, si corpul ei nu a suferit prea mult. E ciudat cum Alissa si Kiira, favoritele mele din ultimii multi ani, adica de la Sasha Cohen incoace, au avut acelasi destin. Niciuna din ele nu va participa la Olimpiada si ca si in cazul Alissei, nu indraznesc sa sper ca o voi mai vedea pe Kiira in competitii chiar daca ea pare foarte optimista.

21st November 2013, 23:55
Si eu am sperat ca dupa dezastrul de la Nisa va reveni si isi va lua revansa printr-o calificare la JO dar si printr-o prestatie cat mai buna:ok:
Oricum sper totusi ca nu se va retrage definitiv din patinaj :(...
