I was watching Direct TV Columbus this morning and figure skating came on!
I absolutely love figure skating. During the Winter Olympics, all I watch is figure skating. There is just something so amazing and majestic about it. I have tried to ice skate before, but I don’t think that I would ever be able to do any oft eh tricks that the figure skaters do ever! Even if I had practiced my entire life, I would be way to scared to try and tumble on the ice.
I have never seen skating in person, but I would love to have the opportunity to so see it sometime. Maybe next time the Olympics come back to America I will be able to make it and catch some of the skating.
I just think that you have to be so talented. You have to be athletic, agile, creative, and dedicated. All qualities that I really admire, but happen to lack! I have always been envious of those people who are athletic and seem like they have the total package.
