About My Skating
I'm a former member of the Albuquerque Figure Skating Club and recently bacame a member of the Centennial Skating Club in Colorado Springs. I skate 2-3 hours every day except weekends. I've been skating for five years and I am working on my Intermediate Freeskate and Pre-Silver Dances. The hardest jump I've landed is double salchow. My hardest spin is the back layback. I have kaboodles of ice skating friends and acquaintances. My first skating competition was in June 1998. My second competition was in April 1999. I did a lot better in my second competition and got several 4th place finishes. My third competition was in April 2000, where I placed second in dance and mostly near last on other events, mostly due to the fact that I didn't land my axel. My most recent competition was at the Pueblo Invitational in February 2003 where I won two gold medals in ice dancing. We recently moved to Colorado Springs and I now train at the Sertich Ice Arena and the World Arena.
Can You Identify These Skaters?
Maggi Mitchell of Southern California was the first person to identify the previous Mystery Skaters. The skaters were Khaltuina & Khoulkov from Kazahkstan, an up and coming pairs team. The new Mystery Skaters won the World Championship on their 5th try. Can you be the first person to guess the identity of this skating pair? I can't give out any prizes, but I'll publish your name on this page, if you are the first person to guess their identity correctly.
It's fun to look for foreign skating sites by using their own words for "ice skating, figure skating, synchronized skating, hockey" etc. during search engine searches. Sometimes you can find some really wonderful skating pages this way that you can't find any other way:

There's a cool English-French Figure Skating Terms Dictionary website where you can look up things like "death spiral" and "triple axel" in French at the Petit Dictionnaire Anglais-Français du Patinage Artistique. If you know any foreign skating names for "figure skating, ice dancing, ice hockey, ice sailing, ice skating, precision skating, skates, skating, speedskating or tour skating" that I haven't listed here, please e-mail them to me including a translation and I'll add them to the list. Unfortunately, I can't add terms that use Cyrillic or Oriental alphabets. Also, if I've made any mistakes and butchered your language, please send me the correct spellings or definitions and I'll fix the mistake :-)
My Favorite Ice Skating Links
SkateWeb: The Figure Skating Page
This web site is called The Mother Of All Skating Sites by many other ice skating web sites. If you are looking for competition results, figure skating clubs, help with skating, commercial skating sites or the home pages for your favorite skaters, you will most likely find what you are looking for at Sandra Loosemore's SkateWeb.
Another super ice skating web site is Don Korte's "The Figure Skater's WebSite". This site has links to just about every important ice skating web site under the sun. This is also a great site to find a skating partner, used skates or technical information about skating. Whether you are a beginner, a pro or a judge, you'll probably find useful ice skating links at The Figure Skater's WebSite.
The Ice Skating Email-Pal's Club
If you're looking for an ice skating e-mail penpal, Lovena Harwood has the site for you! She has sections for 5-10 year olds, 11-13 year olds, 14-17 year olds (Hip Hip Hooray!) and adults. You can list your interests and skating skills to find penpals with similar interests at the Ice Skating Email-Pal's Club. Lovena has loads of other ice skating pages too that you can access from Lovena's Ice Skating Page.
Virtual Ice Skating Postcards
Lovena also has a wonderful Virtual Ice Skating Postcards site, where you can e-mail cool postcards with ice skating images to your friends, relatives or even your coach. Some of the images come from my Ice Skating Clipart Galore pages! You can even add a personal message to the image that you want to send.
Recreational Figure Skating
Donita Dupslaff almost loves ice skating clipart as much as I do. Her Clipart Page includes some images from my Ice Skating Clipart Galore pages, plus some of her own cool ice skating images. Donita's Recreational Figure Skating pages also include late breaking skating news, a nice selection of skating books and a glossary of skating terms.
J. Barry Mittan's Ice Skating Photos
