    The world of figure skating is bent on having their competitions in winter. Don't they realize that figure skating is done indoors and can be done in June? Boy, would that increase tourism around the world!!!

    If figure skating was a year-round sport, I'd hate to think what would happen to the skaters. As it is, with competitions from September through March, and (for the top skaters) exhibitions for two or three months, skaters don't have much down time. They need off-time to develop new programs and hone skills.

    There is a word which could take care of all that: adjustment.
