Why does the Olympics captivate us so much? Personally, I think its because of the drama. Athletes from all over the world spend their entire lives practicing a sport that could make or break their chance for a medal, and the deciding factor can come down to a momentary lapse in concentration. This is especially true in the extraordinary skill of figure skating. Will he/she land the triple toe loop or the lutz jump? All in all the pros make it look effortless. Quite inspirational.

This is my little cartoon drawing of a figure skater who is edging in an arabesque spiral.

The XXII Olympic Winter Games begins on Friday February 7. Which sport are you looking forward to?
