Men Figure Skating
Last night we watched the short program for men figure skating in Turin. I am not sure anymore what this is about since it seems to me like most of the skaters, including Plushenko, do not even need a music for background because their steps do not match the music anyway. It’s true that for the past years I did not watch too much figure skating so maybe that’s the reason that it all looks more like a circus act now than skating. I liked a lot Johnny Weir and an Ukrainian, Anton Kovalevski, that got pretty bad grades but I found he had the best match of skating to music. Plushenko skated like a possesed person with a music that did not fit at all (except maybe at the beginning). Yes, his steps were impressive but nothing beautiful… I hope the free program will be better.
