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.

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.

Cheerleading is a very popular activity for girls, especially in the USA as teacher says. Most Americans argue is it a sport or just an activity that is made just to cheer football or basketball matches. My friend from school thinks that cheerleading is not a sport and should not be taken seriously. She thinks that cheerleaders are being picked into the teams not for their achievements in sports, but for their looks. Only pretty girls allowed. She thinks cheerleading is stupid. I think that cheerleading is a sport, because being a cheerleader holds big responsibilities. You should be physically prepared, train hard, be strong, fit and healthy. They also are great gymnasts and have their own competitions where they compete to be best.  8) I guess there are many in here who would think the same.
