J.R. Celski News

March 29, 2010


It’s time to go through all those google alerts for JR Celski. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last week. Been kind of busy looking for a job…(freaking economy *put frustrated emotie here*)

Here is a video of JR during World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. Looks like a fan video.

Lots of photos posted on JR on his thread at Boots and Blades:

…and let the ‘J.R. fansite love’ begin…

And of course, it was only a matter of time before Cosmo Girl noticed JR:

Five Questions with JR Celski
February 26, 2010 at 2:30PM by Gennifer Delman | 8 comments

JR Celski

Can one ever get enough of cute athletes? CG! thinks not! Washington native and 19-year-old speed skater JR Celski will be competing on behalf of Team USA tonight along with Trevor Marsicano. Get to know JR below:

CosmoGirl: Do you have a favorite designer or clothing line?

JR Celski: I love clothes! I’ll wear anything from Urban Outfitters or American Apparel.

CG: What words do you live by?

JC: “The one who dares, wins.”

CG: What type of music do you listen to?

JC: I’m really into the indie-music scene and listen to a lot of De La Soul.

CG: What would you be if you weren’t an athlete?

JC: I’ve been playing the guitar for about five years now, so it would be cool to be a full-time musician. That — or an architect.

CG: What is something you’d want people to know about you?

JC: Just that I thank God for blessing me with such a loving family and awesome friends.

(JR competes TONIGHT at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Follow all of the American athletes over at Good luck JR!)

Getting some results up before I get booted out of my hotel room and make my way back home.

Athletes compete (USA’s Jordan Malone in third) during men’s 1500m heat during ISU’s World Short Track Speedskating Championship in Sofia, Bulgaria

Oddly enough, this is the only picture so far…and Jordan for some mysterious reason didn’t advance. =(
Guess the photographer showed up at the beginning, took one shot and left! LOL. Hey, I’m not complaining, I’m just sayin’… it’s better than nothing! =)

Katherine, Travis and J.R. all made it to the finals of the 1500m. US Ladies advance to the finals for the Relay (Alyson Dudek, Kimberly Derrick, Lana Gehring and Katherine Reutter- Allison Baver sat this one out). They go up against Korea, China and Canada.

Koreans swept the field in the individual 1500m races for both men and women 1-2-3

…and Meng Wang didn’t advance in the Semi Finals! (write this date down in your calendar! How often does THAT happen?) O_O
