Graceful!

When it comes to a perfected art form, for me, figure skating is it!
Figure skating combines the beauty of a melody, the grace, passion and fitness of an athelete and fashion sense into an artform that not only bring hours of entertainment and awe but also a truly inspirational & delightful sporting event.

It is all about focus, fitness & fantasy. For someone who doesn't skate or has never even seen snow, this is something that instil a sense of imagination; beyond one's reality and awareness. Yet, it is one which every individual can associate with, be it through music or dancing or both. 

Figure skating is extremely enjoyable to watch on the arena or in front of the TV screen. And for me, the ultimate is to combine all that's enjoyable about the sport with human inner urge for competition. The World Figure Skating Championships is the most prestigious where figure skating is concerned. The competition is held annually in the Spring & skaters compete in singles, pairs & ice dancing categories. For me, the pair figure skating is best!

Canada, China, Japan, Russia & U.S.A. are some of the countries which excel in this sport.
Some of my favorite skaters are:

Men Medalists:
Brian Boitano
Brian Orser
Scott Hamilton
Patrick Chan

Women Medalists:
Elizabeth Manley
Katarina Witt
Kristi Yamaguchi
Michelle Kwan
Midori Ito

Pairs Medalists:
Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy
Barbara Underhill / Paul Martini
Ekaterina Gordeeva / Sergei Grinkov
Shen Xue / Zhao Hongbo
