Will figure skating ever be fair? – Romancing the Jock. <– Keira asks and answers a great question about figure skating. Read her awesome post and give her your opinion.

I can tell you right now that Matty from Training Season doesn’t think it will ever be fair, but he’s not sure that’s what matters most about skating.

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?

If you haven’t seen the above linked performance yet, you’re missing out! Such an exciting performance! Here’s to this kid’s future success! While I don’t think he’ll be on the podium at Sochi, I do think he has a very, very, very bright future. And I think Keira, my figure skating guru, agrees with me. 😉
