~ Figure Skating Is My Passion ~
Actually, if you did watch the pair event today the Italian female skater had a nasty fall part way through their program and did look in some pain as she was helped off the ice by her partner. Both Kurt Browning and Carole Lane (Canadian Figure Skating Coach/Choreographer) commented that taking part in the team event first was a concern of some of the skaters going into the Games. Skaters are always running the risk of injury even during practice, let's face it. Figure skaters are tough competitors.
