Figure skating is unlike any other sport. It is graceful, yet full of strength. Beautiful, yet strong. The goal is to make jumps and spins look easy, when in reality they are harder than anything skaters face in life. One wrong edge, one wrong placement of any body part, and a jump can fail. Skating is about confidence, grace, hope, trust, strength, and commitment.
