Inside Edge A Revealing Journey into the Secret World of Figure Skating Characters ç 102 Figure skating is the most beautiful and mysterious of all sports When the skaters are on the ice every twitch of a muscle and every slip of a skate blade is visible for the world to see In Inside Edge Christine Brennan chronicles for the first time a season on the skating circuit intimately portraying the lives on and off the ice of the sport's current and upcoming stars Woven into the narrative are stories of figure skating luminaries past present and future including Peggy Fleming Katarina Witt Brian Boitano Scott Hamilton Kristi Yamaguchi Nancy Kerrigan Oksana Baiul Michelle Kwan Rudy Galindo and Tara Lipinski Reveal A few days ago I was rummaging around the basement for items to include in our upcoming garage sale when I happened upon my baby book Tucked inside the cover were two ticket stubs one from Disneyland the other from Campbell s Soups 1992 Tour of World Figure Skating Champions Finding this was a coincidence since I was at the same time reading about the inception of the professional show in Inside Edge which covers the goings on of the skating world in the mid 80s to mid 90s It also confirmed what I already knew I ve been a figure skating fan for practically my whole lifeSo many of the events and moments discussed within this editorial assemblage are vivid to me my young age when they originally occurred notwithstanding The Nancy Kerrigan Tonya Harding saga The consistency of Nicole Bobek s inconsistency The beginning of the Michelle Kwan era Fascinating to note were the projected stars a hit or miss enterprise euivalent to consulting a crystal ball Sure Sydne Vogel won the 1995 US Junior title but who remembers her now The general public is likely to recognize the then twelve year old whom Vogel beat future Olympic champion Tara Lipinski As Audrey Weisiger pointed out Skating is a slippery sport Even though this was written fifteen years ago Christine Brennan s behind the scenes look at the sport is timeless Then as now there are feuds over judging the triple axel is still an illusive golden ticket for men and women alike the instability of pairs teams in the US is par for the course and there will always be a battle between the teenage jumping beans and the mature artists Brennan s observation of my favorite discipline Ice dancing is peculiar The best moves are almost always illegal but the great thing is no one actually is certain of that As funny as it is trueThere have been beneficial strides Gone are the days of holding up or holding down skaters in an informal pecking order thanks to the pair s controversy in Salt Lake City which spurred an imperfect though improved overhaul of the judging system Stricter set values for skills and greater emphasis on the artistic presentation force judges to rank competitors based solely on how well they complete elements But don t get me started on the institution of the replay systemI loved reading about Janet Lynn the most joyful of figure skaters a long program aficionado hampered from achieving Olympic and Worlds eternal glory by those infuriating old school figures The pros and cons of mandatory figures remains a debate to this day at least in my house The likes of Lynn Tina Noyes and other also rans lead lives of relative obscurity compared to the champions in whose shadows they always dwelled Saddest to look back on were those whom the sport has lost in recent years such as legendary coach Carlo Fassi to a heart attack and choreographer Brian Wright to complications from AIDS Perhaps most aching was reviewing the highs and lows of tortured Christopher Bowman all with the foreknowledge of his tragic passing in 2008 Bowman was one in the long line of Frank Carroll s talented skaters who could never put everything together to win the ultimate prize of Olympic gold Amidst Linda Fratianne and Kwan who would have ever guessed Evan Lysacek would be the first to pull it off As I lamented with Edge of Glory I wish Brennan had continued to write about figure skating into the new decade Though it s worth mentioning that the internet has taken partial ownership of her niche the personal and training lives of today s top skaters are often scarily accessible I sometimes wonder if fans mistake them for reality TV stars This was an engrossing enlightening read that along with the chance discovery of a faded ticket stub stirred up a flurry of memories I relished revisiting Nea A Young Emmanuelle chronicles for the first time a season on the
