Summary

A gorgeous celebration of figure skating and its stars and a look at how the sport has changed in recent yearsA new posse of figure skating superstars has emerged. These young athletes-including Canadians Joannie Rochette, Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, and Patrick Chan-whose skills were so thrillingly on display at the Vancouver Olympics, are celebrated here in glorious images and insightful text.When Olympic judge Jean Senft blew the whistle on vote trading at the 1998 Nagano Games, she brought attention to the need for corrective action. A new system, developed following the 2002 Salt Lake City scandal, is driving the sport in innovative directions. Senft describes how today's skaters are pushed to explore more difficult and dramatic ways of scoring and provides an insider's view of international figure skating at its highest levels.Senft's incisive text is augmented by 10 0 stunning full-colour photographs celebrating the athletes' skill, grace, and artistry. Renowned photographer Gerard Chataigneau captures the world's best as they push the sport's creative and technical boundaries, with glorious images of triumphant Olympic and World champions including South Korea's Kim Yu-Na, America's Evan Lysacek, Japan's Mao Asada, and many others. Triumph on Ice is both a fascinating exploration of the new era in figure skating and a celebration of the world's most dazzling skaters.
