Today, I'm going to talk about a sport that I've always wanted to learn but just never
had the chance to
which is figure skating.
I first learned about the sport when watching the movie Ice pricess on Disney channel.
The movie is about the journey of a teenage girl who wishes to pursue the career of a
professional figure skater.
After watching the movie, seeing how stunning, beautiful and graceful the actress looked as she performed on the ice rink really
inspired me to take up the sport.
However, this is certainly not a sport for everybody.
It requires great balancing skills, flexibility and courage to do all the jumps, spins, step
sequences and spirals in your performance.
Most athletes started training when they were really young and endured years of hard work
and even injuries to gain success,
so their talent and work ethics are definitely admirable.
This sport is still fascinating to me however
When I watched the movie, I was awestruck by the actress' elegant, glittering costumes
but I was even more dumbfounded by her graceful movements which made her look like a swan
on the ice rink.
I've since been keen on watching figure skating competitions.
Even though, to me, all the athletes performed the same stunts like dancing on the ice without
tripping, doing jumps and twirling, each of them has something different to offer to the
audience and all of the performances are breathtaking.
They never cease to amaze me.
In order to pursue this sport professionally, you need to put in hours of strenuous exercises,
but as I have no intention of becoming an athlete, I will try to find time to start
this hobby and share it with my sister perhaps.
