    PRESSION (Pressure) documentary featuring Rochette, Phaneuf, Dubé, Sawyer, Séguin, Bilodeau, Ruest

    They all kind of said that it went wacko when they entered the four-year cycle for the Olympics. Reaching for the top at National is something but being sent to GP events with the expectations of a federation Isa whole other ball game.

    That comment has a sour taste to it when you consider that the documentary is about how skating left them broken inside. How the system doesn’t let them speak about burnout, PTSD or eating disorder. I would likely recommend you watch the documentary before trashtalking. Charlie might not be the...

    Eric Radford and Vanessa James to compete in pairs together for Canada

    Of course it could. You can take what you want. It is still just a skating board. In any conversation you may fall on chitchatters, first hand information or some skater’s acquaintance. You take what you want from it. No resentment.

    We have to disagree here. You can also see how they train these jumps of ice to understand the technique. Prerotation should matter a lot. That’s cheating, whoever the skater is. It’s way easier to have great air position when you use this technique.

    Unfortunately, people don’t record conversations or videotape on a daily basis 😂. Let’s just say that figure skating is a small world at a certain level and people do know each other. I personally pointed these things out because their was a narrative by some posters that Meagan was such a...

    I am specifically talking with how she deals with people in and outside skating. 🕵️‍♀️

    She does it with half of her blade on the ice. Trusova is on the toe pick at least.

    Eric Radford and Vanessa James to compete in pairs together for Canada

    I guess you didn’t understand the underlying message... You can still be a champion and be more emphatic to others and a little bit less self-centered. You can call my message an euphemism...

    Eric Radford and Vanessa James to compete in pairs together for Canada

    This... Totally. Meagan has always been very focussed on her own goals and never quite reached out to her training mates. She is very goal-orientated more than relationship-oriented. Sometimes triggered when the attention is on someone else more than her. These are great athlete’s assets but...

    I have read the whole thread and THIS post is what makes me cringe the most. Babies/foetus need movement +++ even inside the womb. Being bedridden would be worse for the baby. I guess we need to educate people about what is truly important to babies for their optimal development. As for the...

    But there are actions that might be immature, like name calling. That doesn’t mean the person is bad. We all have some relapses at times, even more under stressful conditions. Better said would be “poorer emotional management.”
