NORTH STAR CALLING

Figure skating usually brings to mind individual and pair competitions, but there is another skating sport that has big dreams of Olympic inclusion: synchronized ice skating. Created before Title IX by a father who saw the need for team sports for his daughters, synchronized ice skating has grown steadily yet remains mostly on the fringe. Still there is a dedicated following of determined girls and women (and a few men) who carry the banner, from a teenager on the hunt for the elusive national championship to a 65-year-old woman who isn’t quite ready to retire her skates.
