    relationship between the loop jump and the beautiful body, ice skating, and the nation and how that relationship reveals the views of America. However, what I failed to examine in that paper was the threat black bodies pose to the world of sports’ ideals of beauty, rules of perfection and standard of a world class athlete. In this paper I will use the cases of Serena Williams and Surya Bonaly to explore how their bodies and the lines their bodies create disassemble the ideals of beauty, rules…

    Flying across the ice, the two time U.S. gold medalists Alex and Maia Shibutani danced their hearts out to Paradise by Coldplay only to lose their third gold medal at the National Figure Skating Championships. Their dance and song choice touched the lives of people all around the world, but wasn’t enough to hold their own against the skaters to come. Although the title was the lost, the words to the Shibutanis song of choice speaks volumes. Songwriter Christopher Anthony pulls at the string’s of…

    ground. We dream of the freedom and escape that flying may bring. Now, I never learned how to fly, that’s impossible, but there are some things out there that get pretty damn close to that feeling. Where I’m from, almost everyone skated: speed skating, figure skating, ice hockey, they did it all. I grew up watching Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, and old tapes of Sonja Henie; all of them highly regarded figure skaters. “You always want to run before you learn how to walk” is what my Po-Po had…

    In this revision of my micro essay, “Gender, Sexuality, and Sports in Check, Please!,” I will focus on the idea of being queer in sports, namely hockey, and how masculinity and sports culture in the webcomic’s world affect these characters (in this case, Jack Zimmermann and Eric Bittle). In order to support this idea, I will be using several of the comics, ranging from year one to the most current update, and analyzing certain aspects of them in depth. This would differ from my original essay,…

    Come back with me to the year 2011. It's eighth grade, I'm freshly fourteen years old, and I feel like I'm at the peak of my life. We are going on a skating field trip as a school, and I decided this was the time to prove myself. Girls were watching, everyone was there, if there was a time that belonged to me, it was then. I had never skated before, but I knew that I would be amazing. How couldn't I be? I was the great Austin Howard, a menial task such as roller skating should pose no threat to…

    raining, I'm also horribly sick. With snot dripping from my nose; a box of seemingly useless Kleenexes to the side of the bed, the seconds tick by one after the other. Each minute seeming as long as, or longer than, an hour. I lie in bed, with my eyes closed, but sleep does not come, I'm starving, yet on the verge of vomiting. My mother is out in the cold, with rain pouring down, in order to bring back food, and for this I feel grateful. Better to be sick now than later, I conclude, aware of the…

    Well, that’s what my first ice skating competition was like. First of all I get there and I can’t find my coach so I am practically freaking out. Then to add onto that it is like freezing cold in there, and I am starving. So the delicious smell of different types of food is not helping at all. It all seems to go by really slowly and then it is time to get on the ice. As I am doing my warmup, all I hear is the sound of scraping toe picks on the ice. We get off of our warm up and they announced my…
