    Ok...we've been talking a lot about Lifting lately,and I've been wondering what part all our Skaters here (who do so) have on ice when it COMES to lifting? For example..if your a Synchro. Skater,are you the Lifter or the Liftee? If you do more then 1 Discipline that invoves Lifting (example if your a Pairs Skater and a Synchro. Skater), please mark and say for all.

    Were you just lifted? You weren't in the Shows doing Pairs?

    There was discussion about lifting me in a synchro number, but then we found out it was an illegal move for our level, so it never happened.

    I skated adult pairs for a while and overhead lifts were by far the best part. Love the feeling of watching the boards go by -and once you start working on turns while being lifted, it's even better since you get a very good vantage point. I miss being on the ice :wuzrobbed
