Ice, Sweat and Tears

This figure skating documentary was on CBC recently. An entertaining watch that somewhat reeks of Skate Canada promoting Worlds and Canadian figure skating, though the choice to highlight Paige Lawrence and Rudi Swiegers is a little bit confusing. Maybe they got picked because of Paige’s drive. It’s admittedly impressive. Nonetheless, Duhamel and Radford have a slim but possible chance at bronze if enough people screw up, hence my confusion. Anyways, without further ado…

All in all, the documentary was pretty cool in that it highlighted how hard figure skating is as a sport. Marina is also awesome and hilarious.
