All eyes on Kimmie!

Tomorrow Kimmie Meissner takes to the ice for her first public performance since her meltdown at Nationals in St. Paul.

The University of Delaware will hold a special exhibition on Saturday afternoon, March 1, featuring some of the figure skaters that will compete in the 2008 World Championships scheduled March 17-23 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The cast includes Kimmie Meissner, Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre, Melisa Bulanhagui, and Shaun Rogers among others.

The event is important for Meissner who must show she is capable of a good skate, even if it isn't a competition. Many people will be looking to see if she has made substantitve improvements while working with Callaghan and Eldredge and if she looks prepared for Worlds.

Tomorrow is a big day for Kimmie Meissner no matter how you slice it.
