    So I'm working on a project for school, discussing the various stylistic stereotypes from a certain region - ie, from Europe/Russia, North America/US, and Asia. It seems like it's a question of skating style; ie, the Russians are considered to be the most artistic or balletic. What do you think the stereotypes for each region are, and do you think there's any truth to them?

    The Newfoundland skaters have to deal with the SARS scare; one had a sar neck, another had a sar back.......

    Just a word of friendly advice - not sure it's such a good idea to do a school project on stereotyping where you are actually stereotyping as part of your arguement.

    Stereotyping refers to people being UNFAIRLY grouped together based on sets of perceived charateristics, accurate or not.

    Good luck with the project!
