Here is more of my conversation with Julie Keith and Michael Ricigliano (see below), gold medalists in Championship Ice Dancing at the 2008 U.S. Adult Figure Skating Championships, in Lake Placid, New York. This is Julie and Michael's sixth consecutive win so they were thrilled to come out on top, especially with the high caliber of teams who were entered in this event. They talk about the competition, adult skating in general, and how each got into ice dancing. I hope to see them next year in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the 2009 Adult Nationals!
