How Do They Do That?!

I’ve always been fascinated by the sport of figure skating, maybe because I could never even dream of being able to do what figure skaters do.  I went ice skating twice as a kid…the first time I held onto the rail the whole time.  The second time, I got a little brave, ventured into the center of the rink and did an unfortunate belly flop on the ice.  Needless to say, I never attempted to ice skate again.  (I was OK on roller skates, though.)

Since I can barely stand on those blades, it amazes me what competitive skaters can do.  Check out these tricks:
