I’ve been told that ice skating has become somewhat of a sports cliché.
Ive done it. Ive done it on my own. Ive done it in the USOC. Ive done it in the WSM. Ive done it in the CWC. Ive done it in the USSA. Ive done it in the FINA. Ive done it in Sochi. Ive done it in the FISU. Ive done it in the COC. Ive done it in the FMO.
The Olympics are the pinnacle of a nation’s sporting aspirations. For many nations, ice skating is the sport of choice. But for the United States of America, ice skating is one of the most popular sports in the country. So the USOC has been hosting an ice hockey tournament, the US Open, for nearly 30 years.
Ice hockey is definitely the sport that everyone in the US loves and everyone in the country loves to hate. For some reason, it’s also the sport that the USOC and the USOC-EFA have decided to cancel. After the US Open this year, with a record-setting field of 22 players, the USOC announced that they would not be hosting the US Open again this year.
The USOC and the USOC-EFA cancelled their tournaments last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. They do not want to put public health at risk. In fact, they hope that their decision will help in decreasing the spread of the virus. This is such a huge mistake. Ice skating is a sport that is so popular, so the USOC and the USOC-EFA have the potential to be so successful at this game.
It is an absolute travesty that these two organizations chose a time when the number of players is limited due to the coronavirus. This is just another reason why the USOC needs to completely shut down, because the only sport that has a chance of being successful in this event and the winter Olympics is ice skating. If the government does not force the sport to not be held, then they will do just that.
One of the reasons why ice skating is so popular is that it’s a unique combination of speed and skill that gives everyone a chance to win. It’s the perfect skill to play against your friends to see who can best you in a game of ice hockey.
This episode contains the official description of the event. This is a quick summary of what happened, but I wanted to take a few photos to show what happened.
This is going to be a quick episode, but there’s a lot of detail that needs to be covered. So please be patient while I work on this.
At this point, you should be able to tell that ice-skating is one of the most popular ways to get into the Olympics. If you’re going to go, make sure you’re there in person and practice in the months leading up to the event. It’s going to be a huge crowd, so practice plenty and dress up for the occasion.
