It doesn't happen from time to time. Professional sports are like that — generally. It is like. you know — living your life in the fast lane, using and mobilising your body resources in a very short period of time. No professional sport is good for you, none. The injuries in football are also very bad, rugby, etc. There is no safe sport out there — well, maybe table tennis or stupid curling maybe. Other than that — most professional athletes are f ucked by the age of 25−30. That is because our bodies are not designed for such an intense physical life style, what is good for you is measured physical exercise, etc. That is why I never wanted my kids in any professional sports. But if one does go in there, then they have to give it their all — otherwise it is not worth it. When one sacrifices so much, one has to be a winner. That is why all the criticisms that figure skating coach is getting — they are out of place. I guess she is getting those criticisms just because of her students' successes. She is not there to make a professional sport safe, that is impossible, she is there to get them to win and she is doing that successfully. That is all that counts in any professional sport.

I agree, but I meant career endning injuries, they don't happen very often.
Eteri is coaching since 1994, and since that time 2 of her students experienced career ending injuries (as far as I remember).

Remember we were discussing the differencies between Russian and Canadial lady skaters.
Canadian ladies skate like shit almost entire season, Russian ladies have to be in top shape from the beginning to the very end of it. One mistake at B-level competition can cost you your place in team.

Canadian fans say their approach is better because top Canadian ladies usually have longer careers.

That is good. But ultimately — nothing in this world has any longevity, apart from having kids I guess. That is the only longevity we have as human beings — passing on our DNA. I am sorry, I feel very philosophical today, I am just lazying around after a hard week, my daughter is at the drama school and John took the boys to the golf club (they wanted to drag me with them, but I am just so tired, I can't be bothered and I find the Wimbledon Golf Club extremely boring to be honest). I am sitting in the garden and posting on this forum.

I usually do the same. At the moment I'm listening to ice dance competitions (yep, I just listen to the music) and chatting on the forums.
You know, 80% of their free time figure skating fans are bitching about «everybody but my fave was overscored». I think it is kinda pathetic and many fans understand it, so they are trying hard not to look pathetic and to whine at the same time

I like talking to you, you are so funny and pleasant. We normally have very «full on» weekends here — we bike a lot with our boys in the parks, go to the Wetland Centre — we are members, my husband's bank is one of their sponsors. https://www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/london/ But at the moment I am just in the process of readjusting to my new job and it is taking it out of me — mentally. I kind of realize now that I was nothing but an aide to my manager before, not a proper broker. Now I am becoming one. It is mentally daunting, but exciting at the same time — to make your own decisions you know.

You know — one of the most fantastic sports is snooker. It is like chess — a very mental game. We enjoy it so much in England.

I like to play snooker with friends from time to time!

Lol, a French pair skated to Born to be Wild


I think it was smart. When everybody skates to Carmen and Nutckracker it helps to stand out.

Oh, I didn't say it's a cool track. But that French pair really stood out because of it. It didn't help them to win, of course, they are mediocre skaters but audience will remember them.

This time a pair from Canada won the title. They skated to

I didn't find any really interesting ice dance performance this time, so I decided to post Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin free skate from European championships 2019

You are banging on about skating mostly. Can you talk about anything else at all if you don't mind me asking?
