Russian skater prays, makes sign of the cross, remains one of the few who does not fall
What’s with all the Olympic ice skaters falling all over the place? It began with the figure skaters. Encouraged by weird judging rules to take risks trying to make quad spins skater after skater was falling on their asses because an attempt that failed got you more points than no attempt at all. So these people are getting medals after falling down! This was happening to the men, women and pairs. It was ugly. So I turn on the ice dancing, which is supposed to be artistic and immediately see a couple fall on their asses, then another and another. The announcers were going crazy over it. “This never happens,” said one of them. Oh really?
The sick part is I actually enjoy this. It’s hilarious. I never thought much of ice skating but now the suspense of wondering when someone is going to fall on their ass has made the sport a lot more fun to watch.
A few of the Ice Dance tumbles:
This skater lost her grip and was taken to the hospital on a gurney after hard fall
This skater slipped and both went down
Italian favorites. Guy lost his footing drops partner and falls.
She stood him there at center ice and gave him the evil eye for a good two or more humiliating minutes, quite amusing. He’ll be eating from the doggy bowl tonight.
