I had an interesting thought (yeah amazing I know).
I have never been a fan of Synchro skating. Granted I have never really seen a lot of it until the last few years when there are a lot more clips around so you get the opportunity to see more. It is also brings a lot of skaters into the sport.
However I have developed an appreciation of it, and I think much of it is to do with what IJS is asking of Synchro teams these days. It seems to be leading to a better quality of skating skills and a lot more in the way of creativity.
I would be interested in what others think.
