Why she is an awesome role model I chose Michelle Kwan as a role model because she has a passion for this specific sport. When I was younger I used to do figure staking. I started when I was about 5 years old. I loved to skate; I also wanted to be just like Michelle Kwan. I saw her on Television, competing in the Olympics. I also saw her on yogurt ads. I still love to skate, but I love and have passion for soccer now. What is Figure Skating? Figure skating is a very cool sport. I know this from past experiences. Singles: One short program that’s 2 minutes and 50 seconds to the maximum point. One long program that’s 4 minutes and 30 seconds for men and 4 minutes for ladies. Pairs: One program together that lasts 4 minutes and 30 seconds. The couples work in synchrony and do all sorts of tricks (spins, throws, lifts, jumps, and spirals). Ice Dance: Similar to ballroom dancing. Do not do overhead lifts and jumps. Includes dance lifts and spins. Training Schedule An off- ice training program makes you stronger, helps you use more muscles than skating. You can do weights, go running and do other exercises to train those muscles. Skaters usually do this at least twice a week. Skaters also do dance to keep fit, the types of dance that these skaters do are ballet and modern dancing. They should do this at least three to four times a week.
