Olympic Briefing: Say What?

Press Clippings: As the Olympics get deeper into the heart of the competition schedule, figure skating is going to move to the head of the line. ¬†Along with figure skating will come the figure skating commentators, who will toss out a series of terms, nomenclatures, and phrases that are indecipherable to anyone but…..figure skating commentators. Fear not: our friends at TheWire.com have produced a rather magnificent,¬†GIF-llustrated guide to ice skating jumps. Read it; review it; take it all in and then you will be among the very few who know the difference between a Salchow and a Triple Lutz. Such knowledge might not get you into MIT but it would get you a position as……a figure skating commentator.
