Check out my report from the two ladies practices (and mens and dance competition) at Nationals on Thursday, January 18. Hopefully I'll eventually post my reports from the rest of the week.

I will be attending Nationals starting Thursday. I will be writing daily reports from the event. I'll try to attend as many practices as possible, and, of course, the competition itself! Check out my Nationals page with articles, photo links, and results. Starting Thursday night, my reports will be posted. I will hopefully get some good pictures at the event, and they will be posted within the next week or so.

On IFS's site, they have a small article about ABC's coverage of Nationals. It sounds like they will have a nice profile of Michelle during the coverage:

"We will have something very special with Michelle at Nationals," said coordinating producer Curt Gowdy Jr. "It will be a very in-depth, emotional career retrospective look at her story and the success she's had as the National Champion over the years she's competed."
