There just isn’t anything like crashed ice. This was taken during the team competition qualifiers. When one of the skaters falls there are like a zillion photographers on hand to photograph the fall. They move so darn fast . . skaters and photographers that I really felt like I was participating in the sport. The big race starts tonight at 6:45. last year it drew a huge crowd even though it was so cold that the word cold wasn’t really a strong enough word to describe it.
Dress warm for tonight’s event and by warm I mean that you will need more than nylon legging and sneakers.
