Life is not getting any better for the disgraced World Silver Medalist.

So much ink has been spilled on this woman that I honestly don't have much to add. Like Christopher Bowman and Nicole Bobek, she had a ton of talent that she chose to squander in a combination of not training, bad health habits and a persecution complex.

Having worked in skating from the pre-preliminary to the elite level, one thing seems clear to me:

At the earliest levels (say Preliminary through Intermediate), gold medals go to the kids with the most raw talent.

At the middle level (Novice & Junior) it's to the kids with the best work habits.

But at the top, you absolutely, positively, no two ways about it, must have both to succeed.

Plus nerves of steel and lots of money.

Piece of cake, right?
