Whose who on the ice?

Thursday, 4 February 2010

Having a hard time picking out whose who on the ice? Do all the uniforms look the same? You can find Jilleanne Rookard by looking for her trademark-pink skates!


Thoughts in Vancouver……..

Saturday, 6 February 2010

Jilleanne reports the beautiful scenery and how much different it looks today then the time she was in Vancouver a few years ago…On her first 2 days upon arriving in Vancouver she had the chance to visit the “oval track”, and think how proud her mother and father would be today of her attaining a position in the 2010 Olympics.

The appearance of flags, banners, and a City on the move with the Olympics is just an awesome sight to see.

She can’t wait for the arrival of her family to watch her skate in the Olympics. It won’t be a long wait…opening ceremonies are only 6 days away.

Jilleannes first event on the ice is Feb. 14th, at 4 p.m. E.S.T. We hope you will watch. It will be covered by the NBC Network.  Happy Valentines Day!


First Event Feb. 14th!

Saturday, 13 February 2010

Opening Ceremonies have come and gone, and while exciting and beautiful that they were, Jilleannes ready and pumped to hit the ice tomorrow for her first skate in the Womens 3,000m race.

This race will be televised on NBC at 4p.m. E.S.T. (Eastern Standard Time). Please be sure to watch!

Today is the BIG day!

Sunday, 14 February 2010

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Today is the BIG day! Jilleanne will take the ice in the Womens 3,000m at 4p.m. E.S.T. on NBC, Channel 4, WDIV in Detroit.

We will post results on this site as soon as the race is over. Be sure to watch!


3000m results!

Monday, 15 February 2010

Jilleanne skated the 3,000m yesterday and had a great finishing placement of 12th place out of a field of 28. A little disappointed with the mediocre coverage by NBC on this race. NBC only covered the remaining 2 pairs towards the end of the race!

World Skating Results!
