  First musings
So, here I am, sitting here at home waiting for the final part of the Olympic Figure Skating contest. I've always loved skating - watching it, that is. I only tried it once and could barely stand up.

Personally, I'd expect to be given a gold medal for being able to skate into the middle of the rink without falling on my arse. So how those Olympians manage to skate backwards on one leg (at speed), take off, spin round three-and-a-half times and land on the other leg going forwards absolutely astonishes me.
