    ISU Skating Awards To Debut At 2020 Worlds

    Why isn’t Sui Han’s free program on the list for entertaining programs? It’s so bizarre that they are shaded this way.

    Pairs Discussion Thread 2019-20: “Two skating as one”

    I watched both Sui Han and M T M short programs: nothing similar in movement or mood whatsoever. Sui Han Nichol ‘channeling’ Savchenko? Sui Han Nichol ‘adopting’ poses of Manta Johnson? Nice try.

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    It was very exciting seeing the new programs. I’m trying so hard to like Evgenia’s program, I want her to find peace and happiness, but Satoko Miyahara’ s Memoirs of a Geisha was so interesting, masterful, and authentic. This sport can really tear one apart non?

    What Program Have You Rewatched the Most? Denis Ten. Yesterday, on his birthday, I should have sent this link. Oh Denis. He deserved to win worlds 2013. But what’s that compared to that he deserved to live. A long and happy life. I still cannot grasp that he’s gone. I’m still so angry. I’m still so sad for...

    The Skating Lesson 2018/2019

    I watched just the part about Daleman. I couldn’t take it anymore. Opinions heaped upon assumptions, judgements without fact masked in niceties, wow, I felt sick to my stomach. All three scare me, they shouldn’t be allowed out in society.
