Olympic #figureskating: Oh, those Russians (via http://www.keiraandrews.com)

Only in Russia could the reigning pairs champion skip the pre-Olympic Nationals (knowing he and his partner will be named to the team) and actually work as a commentator in the booth as Maxim Trankov did this week in Sochi. Russian figure skating certainly…

And Keira’s blogging about skating again! Read it. She knows all the things and explains them so well. Also, while I’ve always found Plushenko entertaining, if not a beautiful skater, I’ve got all the schadenfreude over that podium pic right there! Click above to go to Keira’s blog to read more.

Unquestionably talented figure skater Matty Marcus is willing to sacrifice everything for his Olympic dream, but his lack of discipline cost him the gold once before. Now the pressure’s on. He needs a coach who can keep him in line, but top coaches don’t come cheap, and Matty can’t afford to stay in the game no matter how badly he wants to win.
When a lucrative house-sitting gig brings him to rural Montana, Matty does his best to maintain his training regimen. Local residents turn out to be surprisingly tolerant of his flamboyant style, especially handsome young rancher Rob Lovely, who proves to be much more than a cowboy stereotype. Just as Matty requires a firm hand to perform his best on the ice, Rob shows him how strong he can be when he relinquishes control in the bedroom. With new-found self-assurance, he drives himself harder to go straight to the top.
But competition has a timetable, and to achieve his Olympic dream, Matty will have to join his new coach in New York City, leaving Rob behind. Now he must face the ultimate test. Has he truly learned how to win—on and off the ice—during his training season?
Training Season can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, ARe, and Smashwords. Coming soon to iBooks.
