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: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/23/sc...e.html?_r=1&hp
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): http://video.nytimes.com/video/2009/...html?th&emc=th
Very interesting read. Thanks for posting.
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): Preventing Pain in Figure Skating.
Thanks to both of you for two very interesting articles!
