PLEASE don't let this be the end of Angela Maxwell! She's one of the brightest stars out there for the US ladies. Okay, okay, I know she's been erratic with her training and coaching situation (went through Robin Wagner, Olga Orlova, Craig Maurizi) and she's been dealing with back injuries which caused her to miss the 2010 US Championships. But little miss Angela (I can say that, we're the same height) is only 18 and maybe she's meditating somewhere trying to decide where she wants to go with her life.
I reached out to her for an update but no response. If anyone can confirm that she is well and planning for the upcoming season, please leave a comment. So above is the last interview I did with Angela in March when she skated at the One Step Closer AIDS benefit in Central Park, NYC. Afterwards she skated to a Michael Jackson medley and you will see flashes of her brilliance on the ice. Angela, if you're out there reading this, please know you have tons of fans rooting for you.
