Tylenol Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular

Posted by: | Comments (4)

This past week the Tylenol Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular was televised. The event featured nine world class gymnasts, nine world class ice skaters and Chinese pianist, Lang Lang. Here is video of the finale:

The gymnasts featured were: Nastia Liukin, Catalina Ponor, Paul Hamm, Jonathan Horton, Kevin Tan, Raj Bhavsar, Ivan Ivankov, and the acro team of Arthur Davis and Shenea Booth. The ice skaters included: Shizuka Arakawa, Evgeni Plushenko, Xue Shen, Hongbo Zho, Surya Bonaly, Michael Weiss, Yuka Sato, Violetta Afanasieva and Peter Dack.

What do you think of these types of “sport meets show” events? Personally, I think they are a wonderful way to expose larger audiences to the sports while giving the athletes an avenue to continue performing.

US Womens Figure Skating Championships

US Figure Skating Champion Mirai NagasuFigure skating has a new star!! Fourteen year old Mirai Nagasu captured the crown this past weekend at the US Womens Figure Skating Championships. Rachel Flatt (age 15) took second and Ashley Wagner (age 16) took third. The World Championships are in a few weeks and US Skating officials have a tough decision to make. Mirai and Rachel are too young to compete and some of the “veterans” like Kimmie Meissner are not really having their best seasons.
