Olympic skating pairs dating quotes

opinion

From toI was a competitive figure skater. I spent years competing on the national level in pairs with my younger sisterbut never got anywhere close to the Olympics. This should have been mine, Dorothy! Luckily for you, my thwarted quest for gold gave me the skills to guide you through the best event in Pyeongchang: After the short program, here are the pairs in the medal hunt and my scalding hot takes on who is likeliest to win a medal:.

Not only can they pull off amazing technical feats, such as their planned quad twist, but they also manage to emote "Olympic skating pairs dating quotes" to the rafters and seamlessly transition between elements. It takes true mastery of the sport to weave all those point-getting elements into something more than the sum of its parts, as Sui and Han do so exquisitely.

They are deservedly in first place after a flawless short program to k. Tarasova and Morozov sit in second place after a stunning short program that was a demonstration of cold, pure Russian technique.

Many figure skating pairs and...

It was enough to trigger flashbacks to my Russian coach making me do push-ups on the ice as penance for popping a jump. Tarasova and Morozov are less than one point out of first place, but unfortunately they are quite inconsistent much like the Nicole Kidman films of the late s.

If they hold it together on "Olympic skating pairs dating quotes" side-by-side jumps and pull off their quad twist, you should see this pair on the podium.

Duhamel and Radford are two-time world champions and just became Olympic gold medalists in the team figure skating event.

With that gold medal, Eric Radford became the first openly gay man to win a gold medal in a Winter Olympics! I am simultaneously bursting with pride and seething with envy at this achievement, the highest compliment I can pay any human being.

Meagan and Eric were shaky on the first two elements in their short, but recovered beautifully to land in third place. Their secret weapon is side-by-side triple lutzes, the hardest side-by-side jump in the event.

Wait, do I have a… crush on Eric Radford? It was a stupid dream. Aliona Savchenko really wants a gold medal. At age 34, she is competing in her fifth Olympic games. I would love to see Savchenko and Massot medal.

Their jazzy short program was dynamic, deliciously dumb and a delight to watch in a field filled with mournful ballads.

And her haunting will be so graceful.

With your existing account from:

Yu and Zhang are in fifth place after a solid short program to Swan Lake. Zhang Hao won a silver medal in the Olympics with a different partner, despite having one of the most shocking falls in Olympic history on a throw quad. Google it at your own risk. Yu and Zhang will be skating to music from Star Wars in the long program, so if they manage to serve up some icy Planet-Hoth realness, they might be a force to be reckoned with.

To infinity and beyond?
