that is SO cool!! I must try it on my hockey practice, with all the gear, I shouldn't be afraid of crashing lol all I can do so far is a 0,5 axel...

amazing he can jump so well without the toe picks! Ari Pekka :cheer2:

:eek:

isn't this kinda dangerous (and silly!) he can get injured v. easily

wonder if he is still skating (didn't make the team this year didn't he). it's good to see him in olys and in the final in torino (after being so close so many times) last year.

I remember heard that he has played ice hockey as a junior, too. He is familiar with those skates.:lol:

... But I have never before seen or even heard anyone to jump triples with ice hockey skates!:eek:

He has not announced quitting. I guess he loves skating so much that he will want to go on.

Here's a vid of Kurt Browning performing an entire program on hockey skates during last year's Stars on Ice. I especially like the footwork:
