My wife introduced me to figure skating back the in early 1980s when Torvill and Dean grabbed the spotlight with their amazing performance in the 1984 Olympics (check it out on YouTube). I was actually repaying her for her patience with my football obsession, but nevertheless, I did come to appreciate the sport more than I ever expected. But with the stars I knew from those days like Michelle Kwan and Scott Hamilton fading into memory, its time to learn about the new up and comers. Steve Milton shows you the best new figure skaters from around the world with stunning color photographs on each page, along with a brief biography. If you're a fan, you'll want to page through this book all season long to check on the backgrounds of these amazing atheletes.
