Synchronized Skating boards are few and far between these days, so I thought I would post here in my own anticipation of this event. Synchro is an under appreciated discipline of this fantastic sport so I thought I'd share a bit here to perhaps get a few more viewers. Perhaps the delayed regular World Championships will draw a few extra in who are in skating withdrawal? :D
