Emily Scott's Dream 2014 Sochi, Russia
It has been wayyy too long since I have posted on here! I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer! I have started back training for the 2014-2015 season and am excited to be getting back into the swing of things. I wanted to let everyone know that my cousin created a Facebook page for my father and I which I will be updating more frequently once my competition season starts. The Facebook page is Emily and Craig Scott's Olympic dream. It was initially created for my fans to stay updated on my Olympic journey but now I wanted to continue the updates with my next journey. Again, I hope you all are enjoying your summer. As always thank you for being amazing!
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!
You are one special person, Emily, as is your Dad. I am now a fan of yours, and will try to follow your career, and watch you skate in Olympics 2018! The very best to you!
Emily you did a great job! Springfield is so proud! We all look forward to 2018!
God bless America and you. May all your dreams come true. Your Dad is a hero in his own right. Robin & Linda
I just want to say way to overcome and you're doing great! Also, I just realized we share the same awesome middle name! :)
Emily you are a champion. I am so proud to have you represent our country. You were fearless. Gold in 2018. We are counting on you!!
Emily you are a winner already:):):) I am proud to be part of your family:):):) Thank You The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well. Pierre de Coubertin
Emily made the USA team and I am so proud to support her!!!! Way to go Emily!! Next stop Sochi!!!!
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! Em, go get the GOLD! -The Polynice Family (Utah Jazz, '00-'02)
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.
