The thing looks like Debbi Wilkes' "tough" campaign come to life. Is she still trying to make that one work?
Panting, sweating, muscles bulging, HARD falls. It's so DRAMATIC. Voice overs about the legions of girls and boys who want to be one of the elite figure skaters but only a few make it because it's so damn hard! What it does to the human body! There's almost no other pursuit that takes this type of toll, that demands this sort of control, except maybe dance and gymnastics.
It's all like real athletes!
A bonus for me is it seems to feature my absolute favorite Canadian figure skater, Kurt Browning. I can never ever get enough of that guy.
For people who don't get cbc.ca and will miss Ice! Sweat! and Tears! I recommend renting this as close enough:
