Downhill Couples Figure Skating   (+4)  [vote for, against]
A skating event even men can enjoy watching.

Equipment and compulsory skill requirements are identical to standard couples figure skating. The rink however is replaced by a downhill ice sheet like those found in speed skiing venues.

are men compelled (by law or something) to compete in figure skating?

sorry [po] Ive edited my summary.

The next Winter Olympics won't be held until 2010 in Vancouver. Until then it's difficult to get worked up about any kind of figure skating in any configuration.

I hope they have to skate up as well.

Jurist, they still practice between the current date and 2010.

Just saying...

That wont stop them from broadcasting all the figure skating championships, exhibitions and competitions in the mean time.

Instead of a ramp, why not a halfpipe?

A couple's halfpipe competition... I like it...
