2010 World Championship of Figure Skating

Just after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, you might have been inspired to carry on watching the top figure skaters in the World. The next biggest event for figure skating is the World Championships, which are held every year in a different country of the World. This year the 2010 World Championship of Figure Skating was held in Torino, Italy.

Steady with Silvers

For the second year in a row, Patrick Chan has taken home the Silver Medal in the Men’s Program at the Worlds, 3 spots above his 5th place finish at the Olympics. Patrick finished only 10 points behind Japan’s Daisuke Takahashi who took home the Gold while France’s Brian Joubert finished with the Bronze.

Skating with the Stars

Evan LysacekEvan Lysacek

The big story was that defending Worlds champion and 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek, not competing at the Worlds this year due to his participation in the reality TV series, “Dancing with the Stars” . Since the prize money at the Worlds is about $15,000 more than “Dancing with the Starts”, Evan probably decided to do the TV show because of the incredible exposure that comes with it.

Both Russia and China placed twice in the top 5 of the Pair’s Program at the Worlds. Russian figure skaters have always been known to win the majority of the medals at figure skating competitions, but recently China has been showing strength in the Pairs program winning Gold and Silver at the Olympics.

Meanwhile the Ladies Singles and Ice Dancing finals are scheduled for this weekend. If you don’t catch any of the action on television, you can watch some of the highlights HERE on the Internet.

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
