Pairs Figure Skating (Winter Olympics)

Are you watching the Olympics?  I’m playing catchup – and this pairs routine certainly caught my eyes.  It’s exquisitely performed and the height of the throws in the air are amazing.

If you have a cynic who doesn’t understand the attraction of ice skating – is it art?  is it athletics?  Well, this is a good, expressive example – where what is going on is so much more than simply listening to a good piece of music. (Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” sung by K D Lang).
