That's probably my favorite sport in the Olympics, both singles and pairs, followed by ice dancing. So elegant and so dynamic at the same time.
There's a new scoring system in place after the scandal four years ago. I have no idea how it works, and since I'm not a judge nor a skate, I really don't care. As long as politics remain out of it and each skater is judged on their ability and presentation, then I can accept whoever wins. Sure, I pull for the USA skaters, but, really, do you remember who won four years ago? I don't. I may remember skaters, but I couldn't begin to remember much more. I may love skating, but it's not something that I follow closely.
I've only ice skated once in my life. I did very well...then I got on the ice. I don't think I fell, but I spent my time hanging on to the fence for dear life! I'm glad that the commentators are there to tell me what I'm seeing. I watch and think that they are all absolutely fabulous. Unless they fall, and even then I think they're darn good!
