This is the main reason for the  score deductions. However, his determination, grace and skill not to mention the impressive flexibility drove him to still manage a great finale.

Filipino Prince on Sochi Ice Skating Ground


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
There’s no boundaries for Filipino talents. They continue to excel even in sports not totally embraced or even not regularly practiced in their own country. Philippines is a tropical country and ice on ground are seldom seen unless they are generated artificially. Many years back, SM Malls were promoting ice skating facilities and even if they were popular, they were on and off. However  after Michael Christian Martinez’s first performance in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia – they will surely be getting bigger and better! It will not be a surprise that SM’s Forex index will be stronger because of this:

Pinoy Pride: Martinez qualifies for medal round with impressive Olympic debut

By:

Looking like a young prince in his costume, Martinez, 17, wowed the crowd and left the TV announcers thrilled no end with his “stunning routine” while performing through the song entitled “Romeo and Juliet” of Arthur Fiedler.  http://ph.sports.yahoo.com/news/martinez-impresses-crowd-in-olympic-men-s-free-skating-debut-162636929.html


Some ice skating technical experts may say that Christian needs to do quadruple jumps to get a medal – but general viewers can’t actually see any flaws in his routine. His initial show down in the eyes of many Filipinos was perfect and even surpassed expectations. His moment at Sochi Olympics’s first try out belong to people who were watching him admiringly and most of them were in tears! It feels like getting listed again in the Forex Exchange market.

Controversial ice skating contender Evgeny Plushenko might not be 100% happy with his initial performance but you can sense that he’s very determined to make it to the top. Perhaps not this Winter Olympics but maybe next?

By: The Huffington Post Canada

The Olympics got a bit darker and sexier thanks to Russia’s ice dance pair at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi on Sunday.

Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov of Team Russia skated to Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” and channeled their inner “Black Swan” with their gorgeous ballet-inspired costumes.

The couple competed in the Team Ice Dance Free Dance on day two of the Sochi Olympics at Iceberg Skating Palace and skated a very difficult program that had us going “What was that??” every five seconds. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/02/09/russia-ice-dancing-costumes_n_4756189.html


The moves as seen on these pictures were just very artistic generated from bodies that were nurtured for not just dancers but also top class Olympians. Nothing can take your eyes away from the television when you happen to watch this ultimate show. Watch out then for the replay in your area or search at Youtube! Just too beautiful to miss.

Sochi is in Krasnodar Krai,  Russia near the boarder between the country and Georgia/Abkhazia. It is on the Black Sea coast– that must be so magical to be in during the Olympics. Looking forward to the awarding ceremonies  soon!
