Can't stand this sport.....It's hard to win on just skill alone

Sports and sport events are business and show and are rigged. The rest is illusion.

Does she only have one arm? Serious question.

No her arm is bent behind her back, if you look closer you can see her hand there.

Very nice picture. Reminds me of my old days when I did acrobatic rock 'n' roll. I love watching figure skating, it is just so gracious.

I love watching female figure skating. I hate male figure skating. I just can't stand a guy wearing tights...

Can't stand this sport. It's not like a good old fashion foot race where the best man / woman / team wins.

It seems like everything is dependent on the venue. Furthermore, because of race, we see some skaters as being more beautiful and elegant than others. That's natural of course. It's hard to win on just skill alone in ice skating and that's the dealbreaker for me.
