    News Science in the Quest to Ease Figure Skating's Strains

    I don't believe this front page figure skating article in the Science section of the New York Times was posted here last week when it was published? It includes a photo slideshow, podcast, and 2 related skating articles: [url]http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/23/science/23skate.html?_r=1&hp[/url]

    Direct link to the 3.5 minute video "Performance and Safety in Ice Skating" featuring University of Delaware skaters Melissa Bulanhagui and Emma Phibbs (includes a brief clip of Phibbs doing a throw jump with Italy's Daniel Aggiano): [url]http://video.nytimes.com/video/2009/06/22/science/1194840867323/performance-and-safety-in-ice-skating.html?th&emc=th[/url]

    Jennifer Kirk responded to this New York Times article and includes a personal account of how she dealt with her hip injury (not smartly enough, in retrospect): [url=http://trueslant.com/jenniferkirk/2009/06/27/preventing-pain-in-figure-skating/#more-45]Preventing Pain in Figure Skating[/url].
