Four ice skating skills for beginners


In early February 2022, Beijing will host (fingers crossed) the XXIV Olympic Winter Games.

In honor of the world’s elite athletes who come together to compete in cold weather sports (including figure skating and speed skating), Jessica Marshall and I try out several activities featured in the Winter Games.

We started out with ice skating because, quite conveniently, we have a competitive figure skater right here at TU. Besides being the host of The Eagle podcast, Marshall skates – well – and has been on the ice since the age of 4.

So she took me – who quickly learned that ice skating is very, very different from inline skating – for a lesson at Empire State Plaza Ice Rink in Albany. The ice rink is now open for the season. We focused on four basic skills, starting with dropping!
