USA Figure Skating Team: Bronze!

Leave a comment

Well, there are some new (read: somewhat strange!) rules for figure skating this year. It is somewhat like gymnastics (team+individual = medals) but apparently they do the team medals first, then the skaters rest up as fast as they can, and they compete for the individual medals. Guess we will see how this works!

Really excited for a couple of new faces this year. We are just in love with Meryl Davis and Charlie White (pictured); if you haven’t seen them do any ice dancing, please look them up on You Tube. I’m searching for a great video, but the one from the Olympics (nothing on ‘Tube yet) is nothing short of magical.

We are also in love with new comer Gracie Gold; she is light, she is soft on the ice, she is solid in her landings and just a joy to watch. We are hoping she can continue that in the individual competition as well!
