The winter Olympics tend to not be as popular as the summer Olympics. For me personally, I hate the cold weather so I don’t tend to do many winter sports – although I would love to start skiing again. I digress.
Watching the figure skating competition last night, I was floored by the graceful flowing across the ice by both the couples and the individual women. The athlete who blew me away though was little 15 year old Yulia Lipnitskaya from Russia. She is the current European champion and it’s obvious why. She is like a gazelle over the ice, extremely flexible (my hamstring almost tore just watching her) and makes every move look effortless.
You can see her Saturday performance here. She almost makes me want to take up figure skating…almost.
