Yuna

When you want to show skating without triples, this is how it's done. Triples are way overrated, and don't even get me started on quads. IMHO. OK, not so humble.

Interview with Caryn Kadavy

My favorite skater of all time. She was just the best. Most beautiful layback ever. Grace and beauty, strong jumps, excellent spins.

And Skateguard interviewed her.

Aerials & Figure Skating

I was watching Pandora's Holiday Moments on Ice yesterday. And I saw something...I was mesmerized. As if pair skating weren't dangerous enough...AERIALS? Wow. Just wow.


Of course, when she put the strap around her neck, I got really uncomfortable. When I was six, my grandma took me to the circus. I remember a beautiful lady with a sparkly pink halter top showing her midriff and matching harem pants. She performed this spinning trick with the strap around her neck. She fell. There was no net. She broke her neck. She died instantly. I've never wanted to go to the circus since.

At least this skater was holding onto the strap. Beautiful routine. I've always loved aerials. But I seriously lack the upper body strength and grip strength to ever do them. To combine it with figure skating is just epic.
