Extractions: Michelle Kwan , a popular figure skater. Figure skating is an ice skating sporting event where individuals, mixed couples, or groups perform spins, jumps, and other "moves" on the ice, often to music. There are international competitions for figure skating, such as the World Championships , and figure skating is also an official event in the Winter Olympics . In languages other than English, figure skating is usually referred to by a name that translates as "artistic skating". The sport is closely associated with show business, such as "spectaculars" where performers skate unjudged, and the crowd pleasing routines at the end of competition held at many tournaments. Many skaters both during and after their competitive careers also skate in ice-skating exhibitions. edit Figure skates differ from hockey skates most visibly in having a set of large, jagged teeth called toe picks (also known as "toe rakes") on the front of the blade. The toe picks are used primarily in jumping and should not be used for stroking or spins. Toe pick designs have become quite elaborate in recent years and sometimes include additional teeth on the sides of the blade. The figure skating blade is curved from front to back with a radius of about 2 meters. Recently

Extractions: for Figure Skating Books!

Because I optimized all photos to under 30kb, most should load in 20 seconds or less. I also color corrected, sharpened, cropped and enlarged many photos for better viewing. ENJOY (and please respect Photos may not be copied or reposted without permission)!

Extractions: The Skating Channel Several of us true skateaholics have been talking about the idea of a 24-hour Skating Channel on cable TV.... From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Trudi Marrapodi) I too do not understand why there is no Skating Channel. Around 1992 or so, when Arnold Palmer was first bandying about the idea of a Golf Channel, I thought "There's golf on TV every weekend! Why not a Skating Channel?" Think of it... Early-morning exercise shows. Trixi Schuba rousing everyone out of bed at 5 a.m. for lessons with titles like "Birth of a Back Paragraph Loop." A morning show, hosted by Tracy Wilson. Sort of an expanded two-hour live version of "Skate." Scandalous talk shows. Gorsha Sur shamefacedly confesses the brief time he spent as a nanny to Zoe Baird's children before he got his green card. Skating parents tell about the traumatic moment when their sons told them "Mon, Dadthis is probably going to shock you, but...I'm NOT gay!" Skating Music Televison. Hours of performances, each taken from a different source, identified as to skater, song, place performed, origin of video clip, and date.

Extractions: John Hancock's Champions on Ice, 2001 By The Plaid Adder Comments: email@example.com So, I went to see Champions on Ice again this year on Saturday, and forgot to post a report. Events have faded in my mind, but because I know Morgan is out there waiting for this with bated breath (OK, Morgan, humor me and say it's true), here are my fragmentary reflections: First of all, it wasn't as good as last time. I know it's never as good as the first time, in general, but I think this also had to do with 2 things: 1) the enormous number of men skaters versus the very small number of women skaters and 2) a related deterioration in the quality of the male skaters' programs. The Champions on Ice people have evidently looked at the demographics and decided that what their audience wants to see is not so much excellent skating as excellent beefcake. There were some exceptions to this trend. Victor Petrenko, for instance, did a very nice Elvis medley wearing a baggy prison suit (Jailhouse Rock, you see) in which he proved that old as he may be getting, he can still jump. Brian Boitano skated a very interesting number to a song called "Blue," which had kind of a blue theme. Some guy named Dan Hollander did a comic routine to "The Rabbit of Seville" in which, with the aid of a reversible costume, he played both Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. (Cute concept; I found the execution a little clunky.) But most of the men were just out there shaking their little tushes on the catwalk. Michael Weiss, for instance, encased his lower half in shiny silver something or other and went out and skated to what I think, if my ears did not deceive me, was a Backstreet Boys medley. It was
Extractions: Figure skating began to captivate me and my friends when we were 8. We watched Sonja Henie in the movies, we were taken to ice shows, we took lessons, and we had strong views about what we wished to wear while practicing our axels at the public rink. Figure skating wasn't a real sport, comradely and combative like children's ice hockey, which we played in boring skates and unlovely clothes on a frozen pond. It was a romantic and competitive display, emphatically a girl thing. Adorable outfits were a large part of the whole idea. They obviously still are, and not just for girls. My interest in skating withered and died before I was 12, but my evergreen interest in outfits keeps me staring avidly at what is being worn on the ice at the Winter Olympics, even though I now lack much grasp of the rules of the game. I mainly notice that things have come a long way since I was 8. Classic figure skating is now complicated by the development of sensational ice dancing in several categories. The old-fashioned romantic display has been profitably invigorated with sex, fashion, and progressive technical excitement, to say nothing of unceasing soap-operatic drama played out among the participants and spun out in the media.
