Surya Bonaly
Last week, I had the honor of meeting figure skating legend, Surya Bonaly. Bonaly is teaching skating in Las Vegas and enjoys being an American citizen. She can still do her trademark one footed backflip landing on the ice, and she enjoys passing her love of ice skating on to young figure skaters.

I still remember when she got burned at the Olympics. As far as I’m concerned, there was no better trained athlete on the figure skating rink, than her! She kicked ass, especially, during the post event Gala!

i remember when they screwed her and oksana the gold.when she clearly laned on both feet in one of her jumps.yes it was sad her mom passed and she was young,but that was no reason to cheat.that was bull.then they talked about her because she took the silver medal off.i don’t blame her.they did her wrong.she was the best on ice.only woman to do a back flip and on top of that landed on one foot.
