Figure Skating Abstract

The Salt Lake City Sports Complex served as the official training venue for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Its two ice sheets are open year-round for figure skating and hockey.  After 11 years here, I’ve finally found a place for relief from the unbearably hot summer days. Last week I took a few photos while my teacher sprayed ice at me.
