Chinese figure skaters work on interpretive skills

Posted in Figure Skating at 8:15 am by Nicole

Interesting news article from the China Daily, the country’s official English-language newspaper, on a new interpretive skating event being added to the national championships. Chinese skaters have made a name for themselves with athleticism and spectacular stunts (including quadruple throw attempts at the Olympics), but interpretation is still a challenge for many of them (and arguably for skaters the world over). The Chinese national figure skating championships began yesterday in Heilongjiang province, and will run through Saturday.
