That is probably about the most impressive thing most hockey skaters can do.

Now Kurt Browning on hockey skates - that is something else.

Thanks, I always wondered if FS moves were possible on hockey skates. This is very impressive. I would never try it. Hockey skates are way too scary, and easy to go flying forward or backward. Amazing that he can do a 2sal and axel. And also a butterfly with no toe picks.

I was just about to say that Kurt could do any of those moves in his sleep! and so could most elite skaters probably.
essentially hockey skates are made only to skate fast and turn even faster.

I once saw a young woman practicing bracket-three-bracket or similar moves in the field on hockey skates. She fell, and I thought What does she expect, trying that in hockey skates?

:eek: I had to look her up, I don't recall hearing about her before! Is this the same Darlene Gilbert who represented the U.S. in Ice Dancing at the 1964 World Championships? Where in the world did those skates come from?
