    A clear exhibition of sexual discrimination and machoism. The man is portrayed as strong, and rotating the woman however he wants, legs up. This sports must contain at least 50% of women rotating men. And compulsorily from Canada.

    Konsta; I can't agree with your opinion on this. I believe firmly that the sport of figure skating is about people working together doing what they can do. If a beefy woman wants to step on the ice and twirl a little man, that's awesome, I'd totally cheer for them if they're good at what they do. But you can't suggest to make something compulsory for a sport like that. I find that women and men equally have their strengths and weaknesses in this sport and it's a beautiful thing.

    Women have the grace, poise and dexterity to complete many things most men can't. Men have the strength to lift, hold and jump to do many things most women can't.

    I think it's misleading to immediately jump at that as being wrong. It is what it is and I'm going to cheer for the women and men that realize their dreams in doing it!

    That and cheer for Canada. WOO!

    Wow, so people other than Mao chan were skating? Didn't realise! But seriously, congrats to Mao, coming back after a lot of change in her life - and an "onegai" to TV producers: A little bit more of the others please!

    Konsta has simply got to be making a sarcastic comment. There's no way that can be serious.

    Anyway, nice shot!!

    Her arm's look stronger than his with more definition, maybe she should be swinging him around up side down...

    The "costume" is refreshing also. The outfits worn during competition seem to be all about who can use the most flesh colored gauze and show the most cheek. It makes for good eye candy, but really lends nothing to the skaters skill.

    My first thought was the same as Smith's. Minus 14? People . . .
