Figure skating is a very tough sport, like gymnastics. One little mistake can bring an athlete to tears. It is amazing what they do and how they stand up to so much criticism. They are very passionate about it!

I think the figure skating on whole has been very disappointing this Olympics (so many falls from all the countries but USA has looked bad especially Castelli and her partner) , I have to say that the best has been Russia they have been flawless! I liked Gracie Gold and thought she deserved a higher mark , but I don't think there is anyway she's going to beat Yulia (Russia) she is just AMAZING!!!!! Her spins are unlike any other former gold medalists, she's the new superstar of figure skating....
Starting to like the new me! Waiting for my garden to come to life!
The figure skating is my favorite part of the Olympics! I'm rooting for Gracie Gold, but I'm always happy for all the medal winners, no matter what country they are from. I love all the figure skating events, but my favorite is the ice dancing.

I did see most of the performances Saturday and today. The strength, grace and stamina of these amazing athletes is beautiful. I am also inspired by how quickly they recover from 'baubles' and even falls and carry through their programs. Yes I figure skating.

Did anyone watch this competition (even though they put the short program in the middle of the night Saturday, lol)? What were your impressions? I think the women's individual matchup between Gracie Gold (America) and Yulia Lipnitskaya (Russia) is going to be EPIC!
