    I live in the US

    I was only a casual skating fan for most of my life. During my childhood in the 90's skating was everywhere on TV, you couldn't escape it. And skaters were pretty famous..not Beyonce level or anything, but far more than they are today

    Where are you from? I come from South-east Asia too, Viet Nam. There no ice rink here and figure skating is not popular. Most people don't know anything about it.

    I'm from Australia. Figure skating isn't popular here at all, but I've got a few friends who are really into single skating

    I think Meoima came from Vietnam too. And wait, I'm not sure but there are about 2 indoor ice rinks here (one in Royal City, Hanoi and another in HCMC). During the Olympics there was live broadcast on TV but no figure skating. However, some teenagers became Yuzuru's fangirls after his OGM (because of his look ) and imo that "Yuzuru fever" has gone now

    No, I am not. Anyways I have moved to Australia for years now. So I don't know if there is any new rink in my country. The last time I checked, they haven't built one yet. But then, I haven't come back to my country for years.

    I'm from the desert southwest region of the US. Skating is fairly popular where I live, and a lot of groups of kids go to the rink to escape the summer heat. But like everyone else in the US, I think the television coverage has become horrible in this country. I much prefer to watch it online and chat with the people here.

    I forgot about that. I know for sure there's an ice rink in Hanoi and other one in HCM. But I have no chance to go there. These ice rink are used for entertainment.
    Lyndia1703, why do u know about that? I guess you could live in Viet Nam, right?

    Sao Paulo, Brazil. Football (soccer) dominates here, but I could watch the last two winter olympics thanks to cable tv.

    Toronto, Canada.

    Home of Nam Nguyen, training site of Javier Fernandez and Yuzuru Hanyu, and crack-smoking locale of Rob Ford.

    Great to see such diversity on here!

    The Netherlands, after Sochi 2014 also known as the home of speed skating.

    *Figure* skating, on the other hand... well, how many Dutch figure skaters did you see in the big competitions this year, like the GPs, Olympics and Worlds?

    Exactly.
