That's not necessarily true. We've seen Athletes, Amputees, etc. from around the world succeeding in sports and careers, that most thought wasn't possible. That includes People with diabetes btw. It depends how hungry a Person is to step up to their dream/challenge. The mind and spirit are amazing tools.

Thank you Terrie, I like the figure skating and they have some connection with ballet, Sorry Terrie, This is maybe not you thing as I also like the gymnastics that's in the current games (Yes it has a connection with dance)

Sorry Terrie, That's not what I meant. I live in a dry country and ice & snow is not here all year round yet I love the Ice Figure Skating.

You are otherwise still correct how a person who train to do that sport with a desire to do well and rebel in the Olympic spirit with their disabilities which is great to see and see also the technology that helps them to archive that goal.

Hi Peter:

Sorry Terrie, That's not what I meant. I live in a dry country and ice & snow is not here all year round yet I love the Ice Figure Skating.

Well shucks Peter, the U.S. and Canada don't have ice and snow all year round either but both countries have lots of Champion skaters. We have inside rinks during the warm and hot weather. Hmmm...I missed your point again, didn't I?

I love to watch both, gymnastics and figure skating. Yes, similar to ballet indeed.

No you're are quite right, I think that we don't commonly see this too often and then there is the popularity of this sport too as we have swimmers from Queensland hence the medels that we get from the pool.

Yes me too Terrie as I find that Gymnast can be ballet dancers if they're bored with gymnastics. Figure Skating is a dangerous way to dance as you make a mistake, you land awkwardly and you would know Terrie, Ice is hard!!!

Still glum and sad. Well, I sure won't be going to the Winter Olympics. I'm in the south central part of Canada. That's about 2,650 miles away from Whistler. Whistler is in the western part of Canada. Sweety on the other hand may be going if she's up to it. She is only about 73 miles away from Whistler. Lucky Girl!! I'll just have to watch it on my 5" black and white tv.....in an igloo. So still glum and sad.

Okay, I won't then. Geez, you sure have Smart cats in Australia Peter. Our cats haven't figured out how to get the morning paper here yet so them using a tv remote is still in the far future, me thinks.
