That was hilarious. An Australian satire program, Newstopia, was talking about the American democratic candidacy race and whittled Hillary's avenues of victory to sports analogies: "Will Hillary need to choose the Tonya Harding option?" "While beating Barack Obama around the knees with a crowbar so he can't ice-skate in the 1994 Winter Olympics may seem excessive...". Sorry for that irrelevance, I just felt like sharing it.
Anywho, figure skating is an amazing sport, and you need incredible talent for it, but Australia's greatest achievement in the Winter Olympics was Steven Bradbury winning a speed skating gold medal because everyone else fell over, which was fantastic.
All of the synchronised sports do, however I have a soft spot for gymnastics, possibly due to my ardent love of the movie Stick It
, so I'm looking forward to the Olympics this year
