EisKUNSTlauf = Ice Art Skate

This is the literal translation of the German term for Figure Skating. And I think, it could not fit better. 

World Championships 2004. Dortmund. I was lying in bed watching TV and, as usual, there was only shit on. I stopped at Eurosport and a German named Stefan Lindemann won the bronze medal. That is when I fell in love with Figure Skating.

I got into the details, learned the differences between the jumps and dived into this world of Kunst. Of Art. 

The combination between art, dance and power has fascinated me ever since and when a big event is on, I am not to be seen until I have seen it all.

Now, I also want to write about it all.
