    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    Out of interest where did you skate? I skate at Deeside in North Wales and I honestly have never heard any coach screaming at anyone (which isn't to say that it doesn't happen), but then we also don't really produce elite skaters at my rink with the exception of ice dancers that were coached...

    Masks, Shields and other protection

    I figured it out myself.

    I cannot believe that wasn't a sketch show, from the camera close up on the interviewer to the complete shitshow that was Trumps answers.

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    Also unless they have news that we don't about vaccines i'm not sure how Dancing On Ice can possibly go ahead with the social distancing guidelines in place. The point being - if the elite athletes that compete in this sport are wondering when their next competition will be and how they...

    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    True enough, but then her body changed rather a lot after that.

    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    Why would Tutberidze even need a commitment beyond the next Olympics, she hasn't managed to help a skater over the age of 16 or get someone who lost their form to regain in. The next young skater is waiting in the wings anyway so would she really care? Or was Kostornaia pretty much her only...

    It's very hit and miss I think. The bars and pubs in the city centre are very strict about table service and contact tracing details. No cash. Quiet music. In the gay village the council has authorised the closure of the small streets so that the bars and pubs can set up tables and chairs...

    Well my city in the UK (Manchester) has had some restrictions put back in place. You can't mix households indoors or in your garden. But pubs, restaurants and gyms remain open and you don't have to wear masks to be in any of those three places. :rolleyes: The numbers have gone up, it quite...

    :rofl: Andrea Bocelli one of the most respected Italians :rofl: he's not even one of the most respected Italian singers so forgive me for still :rofl: Then why did you respond to @MacMadame assertion that 74% of Californians are in favour of stricter lockdown with a question about how you...

    Where in the US, and what kind of proposals - like the strictest point in the UK where we were all allowed out for an hour of exercise and to go to essential shops? Or like Spain where no exercise was allowed and only essential shopping was allowed? Or more like the UK now? Or some hybrid in...

    @Louis why are you still banging on about lockdown, when we're not in lockdown, there are no proposals to go back to restrictive lockdowns. It would also be helpful if you didn't jump around the globe when you're making your arguments because it really feels like you pick a country in the world...

    :confused: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: well if esteemed and well regarded epidemiologist Andrea Bocelli thinks the restrictions went overboard then we should all fall in line behind his views.

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I would definitely consider this but my work place has no showers and the only rink that would be feasible to do this has no showers either so its a non starter sadly. Since my ankle surgery we have moved to more flexi-time (thought it's all suspended while crud is out there and working has...

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    Yes these are all the thoughts that have been going through my mind. Honestly being in lockdown has made me see just how much of my week is totally scheduled and how little breathing space I get during the week. Getting back all my commute time, not sitting in traffic to get to the gym where...

    Regardless how dramatic you are with it, being in your own home and only being allowed out for essential food/medicine shopping is not "being locked in a cage". Not even close. Even a small apartment is not being locked in a cage and not even remotely close to being in prison :drama::drama...
