  •  You're talking about the scoring (0+ / 0-)

    not the actual performance.  Figure skating scoring IS bogus, I'll readily admit it.  And the new system didn't improve things.  Quite the contrary, it placed emphasis on accumulation of points rather than blending powerful athleticism with musical artistry.  But the act of skating itself is quite difficult.  If you think you could do any of the things you've seen figure skaters do while balanced on a blade 1/8 of an inch wide, I think you're probably sadly mistaken.  And you don't build up golf by trying to tear figure skating down.  I don't care for golf at all but I can certainly see that it takes a great deal of skill.
