My Letter to Anni Friesinger
January 11, 2003 - Anni's 26th Birthday

On January 5, 2003, beautiful Anni Friesinger of Germany was crowned Ice Speed Skating Champion of Europe at Thialf Ice Stadium in the Netherlands, along with Gianni Romme of the Netherlands in the men's category. On January 11, 2003 (Anni's 26th birthday) I posted the following letter in her Web site guest book. If you would like to send a special message to Anni you can do it by making an entry in the Anni Friesinger Guest Book at Anni-Friesinger.de. Enter your name, email address (optional), and the text of your message. Select "eintragen" to post your message or "loschen" to clear your message. Here is what I wrote:


January 11, 2003
Happy Birthday Anni from California!

I traveled from Los Angeles to Heerenveen last weekend, to watch the European Ice Speed Skating Championships, and since I usually write articles about skating on wheels, this was my first big ice speed skating event (I decided to attend my first ice event in a country where they REALLY appreciate speed skating and skaters... I sure did pick the right place - speed skaters are like rock stars in NL!)

I was absolutely thrilled to be there in person to watch you skate, and even more excited on Saturday when you allowed me to take a photo and gave me one of your autographed cards (maybe you remember... I was accompanied by photographer Ewoud Broeksma).

Now I have seen for myself that not only are you a beautiful and incredibly talented skater, but also a lovely and gracious person who appreciates her fans and is kind to them.

Speed skating is getting very popular in the United States (since the 2002 Olympics) so I will be writing many articles about your sport in the future. I will also be following your career very closely! Any time you have a special press release I hope you will send it to me at kathiefry@skatelog.com.
