Today's most exciting figure skaters are spotlighted in this richly illustrated book. Combining grace, incredible athletic ability and artistic showmanship, figure stating is exhilarating and highly entertaining. Anything can happen on the ice and often does. As the fans of competitive figure skating know, beauty and danger add up to the greatest show on ice.
Figure Skating Now covers the men, the women, the pairs teams and the dance teams. This second edition covers the reigning stars such as Timothy Goebel, Sarah Hughes, and Michelle Kwan, and introduces the next generation of competitors: Brian Joubert, Sasha Cohen, the pairs team Oberta and Sokolov and many others. With biographies and statistics, Figure Skating Now is an insider's view of international figure skating at its highest levels.
From the Author:
Runners run, boxers throw punches, hockey players shoot the puck, figure skaters express themselves.
All sports are great, the challenges they provide are an elevation for the soul of man, however, while every human endeavor can be turned into an art form, figure skating stands out as a sport that could not exist without artistry.
Uniquely, figure skating provides spectators with images of ever renewed creativity. It also provides the thrills of the sporting accomplishment where athletes surpass themselves, reach for the ultimate effort and the ultimate performance... As the photographer of Figure Skating Now, I understand all of this, and, as I shoot, this is where I find my energy, motivation and inspiration...
Moments will pass but the pictures will stay. Those who read Figure Skating Now will obtain a clear and precise account of who is on the scene and who does what. It is my hope, as well, that through the pictures, they will enjoy the greatness of the sport and relive the moment in a close and personal way, every time the book will be in their hands.
