Memories of Childhood…

My childhood was full of great figure skating memories, having grown up in the era of Kurt Browning and Michelle Kwan. This man, however, along with his rival – Mr. Platinum medalist – made men’s figure skating super exciting for a good chunk of my childhood. In this particular competition, Alexei Yagudin was beaten by the men’s skating curse in which the World Champion in the year previous to the Olympics will not get Olympic gold. He had to relinquish his World title to his rival before achieving gold in Salt Lake City. It’s just a pity that the person to defeat that curse was Evan Lysacek. Though I still take pride in the fact that his footwork here can still put Patrick Chan’s to shame.
