I like what he wrote on the front page of his site - excerpts:
His March 2012 blog recaps his 2011-12 season: http://www.rossminer.net/blog/files/...dd0e70b-0.htmlI am proud to be a skater. ... However, it’s a lot of hard work. Don’t be fooled by the sparkly costumes and the lyrical music; for me and for my competitors to skate at our level, the training, both on and off-ice, as well as maintaining consistency, is very tough. In fact, publications like Sports Illustrated and USA Today have included “landing a quadruple jump” in their lists of the most difficult things to do in sports. As I practice my quad jumps, I completely agree with them!
In fact, my biggest inspiration is my 91-year-old grandfather, who grew up on a farm in Missouri during the Great Depression, was a SeaBee in the Navy during World War II, and started his own successful construction company. He is my biggest fan (sorry, Mom and Dad) and when I went to visit him in his home in Iowa after Four Continents this past February, he said to me, “Just try as hard as you can. That’s all anyone can ask.” I try to live up to his request every day.
