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.

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”.
• Is the figure skating world in Canada thriving?
• Will be able to maintain our highest level of world class competitors?
• Internal rivalry, between skaters, has gained bad press for the sport.
• Has controversial judging tainted competition?
• Will the respect for the sport ever return?

In the NFL, the Giants made out very well in the NFC East despite having a bye week, as the Eagles and Redskins both lost, giving the Giants a full-game lead in the division. The Jets, like the Eagles, missed an opportunity to get into at least a share of a playoff position. However, the Patriots could go up five games in the division with six to play if they defeat Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. We put a bow on Week11 and look at the playoff races around the NFL. ***
In hockey, the Rangers are right at the top of the league as one of the league's best teams. The Islanders cannot figure out the Canadiens after dropping both ends of a home-and-home this past weekend, but very few teams have. We talk about the hockey locals and go around the NHL . ***
