SORT BY Relevancy
Figure skating is notoriously rife with drama and intrigue. Since its introduction to the Winter Olympics in 1924, figure skating has been one of the most popular, yet controversial competitions.
For the first time in the 106 years since the sport was introduced, figure skating will be a team event at the Sochi Games. In addition to their individual events, athletes from 10 countries will compete against each other as a squad, combining their efforts for a shot at a group medal in addition to individual crowns.
As Olympic events go, this one has the intrigue and secrecy of a Cold War spy novel. Countries have been guarding their playbooks like their national secrets for good reason.
Most recently Amanda won Battle of the Blades with retired NHLer and skating partner Scott Thornton.Amanda joins us to chat about her path to the Olympics and what it means to compete and sacrifice to get to the the top level of amateur sport in the world of figure skating.

The common mindset is typically driven by the idea that "It is absolutely necessary for me to fugure him/her out.....in order to trust him/her with my feelings!!!" .....as if anyone is responsible for your feelings.....
Is this mindser practical?
Does it or can it translate to a better or longer-lasting relationship?
Is it possible that this eagerness to "figure" your partner out stems from personal insecurity and a deeper desire to fugure oneself out?
Join Jahwie and Nalagy this week as we discuss.
Everyone loves figure skating!
“Every winter, millions of Canadians take to the ice, indoors and outdoors, in search of fun and fitness," says Skate Canada, the governing body for the national sport.
In our country, you'll see many figure skating events on television throughout the year - Skate Canada, Canadian championships, world championships, and more. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir stole the limelight at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and Canada’s strength as a figure skating nation is a proven result of not only this type of exceptional talent.
A group of skaters and coaches who have been willing to take risks and be part of the continuous re-definition of the sport continue to extend our expectation of what is possible.
Join the conversation as we pull back the curtain on The Inside Edge of Figure Skating with Elvis Stojko and PJ Kwong, CBC Figure Skating Correspondent and author of “Taking The Ice”.

November 14, 1916 - Mabel Fairbanks, hall of fame figure skater and coach, was born in New York City. Fairbanks fell in love with figure skating in the 1930s. Despite her ability, she was not allowed to join skating clubs because of her race. She was often told, “We don’t have Negroes in ice shows.” She eventually left the United States and joined the Rhapsody on Ice Show where she wowed international audiences. When she returned to the U.S., Fairbanks found that the situation had not changed. After retiring from skating, Fairbanks started a skating club and coached many future champions, including Scott Hamilton, Tai Babilonia, Randy Gardner, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Tiffany Chin. In 1997, Fairbanks became the first African American to be inducted into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame. Fairbanks died September 29, 2001.
