The Skating Nun
« on: January 15, 2016, 09:56:29 AM »
A friend sent me this link because he knows that I'm (1) Catholic; (2) friends with Women Religious (aka: nuns); and (3) a figure skating fanatic.

Just goes to show you that nuns are just people like you and I, who put on their skates on one boot at a time!

Enjoy!

Good grief!   Take a close look at the ice surface.  It's either partially covered with snow, or heavily chewed up.  Either way, it's incredible she pulled off those spins under such conditions.
