    Sale and Pelletier Demonstrate Pair Lifting

    The NBC broadcast of the pairs competition has just shown a segment featuring Jamie Sale and David Pelletier demonstrating the fine art of pair lifting.

    David said, "When I lift, I always take the attitude that the man should be the stem, and the woman should be the rose. I never want to detract from my partner, and I want the attention to be on her, not on me. I want to place her down as softly as possible."

    They demonstrated several lifts. Very nice segment!

    I vaguely remember Randy Gardner saying something to that effect around 30 years ago.

    Could be. I remember other male pair skaters making similar statements, but I cannot recall exactly who said it. It 's a nice analogy, though.

    I would much rather see Shen & Zhao demonstrate pair lifting. Now that's good lifting.
