Super Skaters - hard cover book - Steve Milton
Pick up from Mitchell Park, SA, or post at additional cost
If bundled with other books - and many other skating books on offer, I can look at a better price for a bundle
Great book for the younger or obsessed figure skater wanting to see a little bit of history, gain costume ideas, or just to add to a collection of figure skating books.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Not only will Super Skaters be of great interest to avid figure skating fans, but it will also be very useful for school research projects. The book is introduced by a history of figure skating, from the first use of animal bones as skate blades some 4000 years ago, to the use of metal blades in Holland in the 14th Century, to the founding of the first skating club in the world in Scotland around 1650, to the present. As well, there is a description of how skaters prepare their programs, illustrated explanations of how the various jumps are done, a listing of the Olympic gold medalists in the four skating disciplines (men's, women's, pairs and ice dance), and an explanation of how competitions are judged.
While the above-mentioned sections are perhaps the most useful parts of the book, most people will be attracted to the book primarily for the pictures and biographical information on 21 top figure skaters, including Canadians Elvis Stojko, Isabelle Brasseur, Lloyd Eisler, Shae-Lynn Bourne, and Victor Kraatz. The biographies are kept to one page in length.
