This morning Vancouver 2010 released tickets to the figure skating training sessions. $30/ticket and most sessions last from 7am - 1pm.
We did this in 2001 when Vancouver hosted the World Championships. It was actually really cool. I'm not up on things in the figure skating world but there was this Russian couple (not sure if they were pairs or ice dance) and they would just intimidate everyone else on the ice. Everyone's out there, trying to practice jumps etc and the Russians just skated as if they were the only people on the ice. There were numeous almost-collisions and lots of death stares aimed at the Russians. Loved the drama. Can't wait to see what happens this time.
