WYR binge watch "Victoria" or old figure skating videos?
Figure skating videos…considering that I’ve already binged “Victoria.” 😉
Places to live: Alps for me.
And sledding by moonlight sounds marvelous!

WYR watch ski racing or snowboarding?

Have your favorite retired skater magically come back to peak form and be competitive (Quads/Trixel) for one season

OR

Rewrite one Olympic injustice (Ex: Yuna gets gold in Sochi)

If skater, who and why?

If olympics which one and why?

Fix that one thing about your fave that they aren't fixing (flexed feet, bad posture, poor crossovers, etc.)

OR

Add one non-jump element/skill that they don't have (A nice held spiral, cantilever, Ina Bauer, hydroblade, spread eagle, split jump, Biellmann Spin, etc.)

If fixing, who is it and what do they need to fix?

If adding, who and what should they add?

Gracie Gold
She's never been a super favorite of mine but she's been through SO much and showed a lot of courage at this year's US Nats. She had a lot of potential and I wish she could have a real chance to fulfill it.
Same for Polina Edmunds...but oops...that's 2 skaters, isn't it? :slink:

I like your two choices ... they are such completely different as skaters and as people. They're both re-writing their 'ending.'

@Trusova4Ever :

I would love for Ashley Cain-Gribble and Timothy Leduc to add a gorgeous double Ina Bauer a la Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner ... and hopefully could spare enough time in a free skate to hold it like Tai & Randy did. Ashley and Timothy would be able to do it beautifully.

WYR see pairs be rewarded more for technical difficulty such as quad throws and twists, or rewarded more for unique choreography, better synchronicity and connection?

oh, Tai & Randy's double IB was so beautiful! Would love to see that from any pair who could do it well.

As for your new WYR, choreography. Absolutely. Nothing against fancy tricks but IMO we need more stuff in between; otherwise, it's just a jump contest.

Worlds - although we have been very fortunate to attend several Nationals when they are on the East Coast!

WYR go surfing or water skiing?

Skate America, but it would still be really cool to attend 4CC!

WYR watch a horse race or NASCAR race?
