I think in fact they do have big butts including katarina and michelle Kwan. But they are usually big nice solid butts that I would never vent about.

And big strong legs......yummmm.

Now the male figure skaters..... there's an odd lot.

Those are butts I would never complain about; spherical and wonderful.

Female atheletes often develop those muscles, and they stay forever. Nice!

Oops! Sorry. I forgot, this was supposed to be a vent.

Damn those skimpy litte costumes!

Try being a ski freak dad in the same house with a wife thats gone from skating to being a coach plus 12 and 14 yr. old daughters that both started skating before they were 15 mon. old and now skate at least 18 hrs a week. Attempting to watch any sport that doesn't include toe picks is a challenge .
There , thats my vent .
The one good plus is they understand edges very well , have incredible balance and strength . Plus all the formal coaching has made for easy teaching and resulted in a pair of good skiers.

...

the only problem i have with figure skating is that during the olympics we have to see every skater of every single round of competition, both long and short format... while we're lucky to see half the skiers of the second run of 2 or 3 disciplines.

Figure skating is a joke. Why can't they stay on their feet? Put on a little muscle! Elvis Stoijko (?) was the only guy who seemed able to lift anything heavier than lace.

Hear that? It was the sound of freeskiing leaving the world of sports. What is it, now? A pasttime?

At least it's fun!

Thats like saying gymnastics is not a sport . As for strength of figure skaters the strength to weight ratio is one of the highest in sports (equal to that of gymnasts).
I do agree there were and still are some judging issues but they have gotten rid of the biggest part of corruption , unfortunately it's going to take a long time to remove the stigma that came with the problems.

Leeroy--I agree with both your posts and skaters are some very strong folks...............

but Leeroy: ................Leeroy:.........Leeroy ......don't avoid the obvious question we are all thinking:

What are the family butt sizes ?
post #17 of 28
Dunno 'bout big butts, but Katarina Witt has a huge muff. Saw it in Playboy.

Based on what I've been reading here, you'll also have to get used to abunch of internet pervs ogling their butts.

Actually the big booty thing for figure skaters is more from the past than present , the muscles used for power when jumping are the ones that get biggest. Now there is more cross training and repetetive weight work for the whole body than there was in the past , plus they are trying to get the skaters to use their whole body for momentum rather than consentrating on the large muscle mass to get the job done. But the simple fact of having a well rounded rear is still one of the side effects of figure skating .
Now for my own safety and due to the fact there are some people on this site that know my wife and would just love to drop a little tidbit of info I will say that they are all nice rear ends and nowheres near what Katrina Witt is packing around.

Mrs. Leeroy: Leeroy, does this new skating outfit make my butt look big?

Leeroy: ....uhhhhh...no dear.

1. I will admit that I've found that 99% of female skaters I've seen on TV to have gorgeous butts/legs.

2. I'd take competive figure skating a bit more serously if they wore standard wardrobe like the plain leotards worn in gymastics. When someone needs a $12K costume solely for costmetic purposes to compete; it is no longer a sport; it's a performance.

3. Ice-dancing. Now that's a freaking joke of a sport. Gymnastics is a sport but ballet dancing is not; by analogy why the heck should ice-dancing be a sport. An artistic competion like ballroom dancing, sure? Sport? no.


4. What makes mommies and kids (and daddies who like nice female butts) to watch TV is what gets on TV during the Olympics. That's why you see three 30 sec clips of three skiers on the ski coverage. That's also why ice-dancing is a Olympic sport.

Wasn't it Hemmingway who said: "The only sports are mountaineering, boxing and bull fighting. Everything else is a game."

Anyone else here old enough to remember the National Lampoon version of the olympic ice skating announcers? Or how about the National Lampoon Mr. Rogers neighborhood? (can you say "eggamuffin"?)

Learn to turn---next time you go skating try this. Skate down the Ice, grab and lift your partner over your head so they are parallel to the ice. Spin once or twice and gently put your partner down on the ice.

Also a large amount of technical skating moves are used in Ice Dancing, only they need to be accomplished at the same pace and time as your partner.

Now if you want a joke of a sport---what about curling, One guy throws a flattened out bowling ball down the ice and a bunch of other guys sweep up the place. :

Now you're going to raise the ire of the Scotsmen on the forum.

There's no refuge, not even curling.

I was raised in Canada, and it's a remarkably serious undertaking up there (I couldn't fathom it). Friends of my parents would curl every week, and attend Bonnspeils (sp) on a regular basis. Go figure!

Hold on...you're skiers talking about other people having big butts I personally can't say anything, because I've got a racer butt which is probably way bigger.
post #28 of 28
Will, good point. I once spent most of a season at Mammoth, where they had a pretty good racing program, and a prevalent condition we called "the Mammoth Spread".
