Hello All,
Well... I DID IT! Thank You to each and every one of you for believing in me and following me along this crazy ride. I still can't believe that I am going to the Olympics. I hope that some of you were able to watch on NBC and knew which one i was. :) I am trying to get my dad to be able to go and watch me in Sochi so please say a prayer he is able to. Thank You all again soooo very much!

Hello All! Olympic trials are less than one month away! Where has the time gone?! Anyways I am training as hard as ever. This is what I have worked so hard for and it is almost here! NBC will be airing our trials live so everyone at home can watch and cheer me on! The trials are January 2-5. I will need all of your prayers and support during this time! I just want to say Thank You to each and every one of you that have continued to follow me on this journey. I hope to make you proud! :)

Why are so many people airing their political agenda on this site? It's annoying. I live in California. I can't afford health insurance. I don't make a lot of money. I DONATED. Go Emily! Do yourself proud. Do your family proud. Do your best.

Emily is my neice and one amazing young lady. Thank u to all who have and will support her. I am so proud of her. Very few know the real struggles this kid has been through. She deserves to represent our country in 2014. She is the epitome of the American dream. Go Em! I love you and so proud beyond expression of who u are. Thrilled to hear that your dad will be there to watch u. U make us all so proud to call u family. Thanks again to all of Emily's supporters. Never a more deserving young lady than this one.

An open letter to Tammy M.: It seems from your rather selfish and infantile comment that you are not in favor of what this lady is trying to accomplish. Maybe she has goals that your simple little brain cannot digest? Maybe your only goal is getting to the bottom of your industrial size bag of Dorito's. Might I suggest you find something constructive to do besides trash someone's dream. Judging by your adolescent text maybe a remedial class in grammar might be needed. Real people do use the F bomb in normal conversation. Have a nice day sweetheart!

Better to fight for something than live for nothing. Good luck! #goforgold

Good luck Emily!! I know first hand the hardships that go along with trying to accomplish an Olympic goal.I am traveling down that same road and have been trying to raise money the same way. It made me very happy to see an article, this morning, about the hardships of being an athlete outside the mainstream sports. I will be cheering for you! USA!!

Emily Scott will show miserable little lards like Tammy Mazzullo and her hateful comments that being a professional athlete IS a brilliant career, with sponsorships, speaking engagements, and coaching in her future, ESPECIALLY AS A GOLD MEDALIST!

Emily Rachelle Scott is an amazing dedicated athlete that trains along with my son and she is a great young lady. Thanks everyone for your support and kind words. US Speedskating Athletes work constantly to bring medals home from the World Cups and the Winter Games. These athletes skate to bring glory and honor to the US.

Work hard and WIN, Emily!!

I was happy to donate to Emily. It is very hard work to attain ANY medal in any event at the Olympic level and you have to constantly work at it. How pride all of the USA can be with the exception of people like Tammy Mazzullo who is a very sad individual and was never taught the joy of helping others. Her comment shows anger, spitefulness and jealousness. This was not the forum for it. Americans take pride in their Olympians and their accomplishments and I believe we will do everything to help them. Even if someone donates a $1.00.

Why was her stipend cut? Who is in control of the stipends? The citizens of the United States of America ARE THE GOVERNMENT. The citizens just elect people to represent THE GOVERNMENT. I believe some sort of minimum stipend should be used for these above-average athletes.

I love the desire you have to fulfill your dreams! If my kids ever reach the Olympic level, I'd feel blessed to have others support that goal. Keep this in mind...everyone that has provided financial support anonymously will probably feel very proud of you during your event, knowing that they were able to give you a boost when times were tough. God bless you during training & in Russia!!

Thank you, Paul for telling us about the other Olympians who also need funds. I am going to try to donate to them also.

You are amazing! We think you were cheated out of gold, and I know it is hard for the judges to call cheating by another country. But America knows you have the heart to win the gold, and in our eyes you did!
