Rachael Flatt Leaves Broadmoor

New, 9 comments

Well, Rachael Flatt has officially cut ties with the Broadmoor Skating Club and coach Tom Zakrajsek as she prepares to attend Stanford University.  Of course, school doesn't start until last summer/fall, but I guess she is dunzo with Broadmoor.  It's interesting that there is not talk of who her coach will be while she is at Stanford. 

Flatt still expects to compete in the Grand Prix and the rest of the skating season, apparently. Also, she will spend some time training in Delaware.

According to The Gazette of Colorado Springs:

A 2010 Olympian, Flatt, 18, will take a family vacation to Hawaii over the summer, work on her triple axel at the University of Delaware’s high performance center, participate in a freshman orientation at Stanford and look for a new coach in the Bay Area. Her parents have put their Springs home up for sale, with intentions of moving back to San Diego.

Flatt aims for a full load of courses in chemical engineering her initial quarter at Stanford, and she plans on competing in the Grand Prix series that runs from October to December. She also has circled the U.S. Championships in January in San Jose, Calif., a qualifier for the Four Continents Championships in February at World Arena and worlds in March in Nice, France. The next Winter Olympics are in February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

Good luck to Flatt.  Hopefully she is taking time off to allow her stress fracture to heal.
