Here’s a wonderful article about American adult figure skater Bill Todaro. A classic case of AOFSS (Adult Onset Figure Skating Syndrome) if ever there was one
According to the article, Bill got a somewhat late but but rather interesting start to his ice skating career.
He has participated and medalled at several US Adult Figure Skating Nationals in ice dance.
He also trains like an elite athlete with a full program of off-ice training activities.
…and according to the article he is that rarest of rare birds: a male competitive ice dancer who is currently searching for a new partner!!
Bill Todaro, you are heretofore declared Adult Figure Skater of the Month for September!
By the way, I’m always open to receiving nominations for adult figure skater of the month, don’t be shy! Nominate yourself! Adult figure skaters are a dedicated and hard-working crew son let’s celebrate our accomplishments. And please, please, please… don’t be thinking that you have to accomplish great skating feats to nominate yourself or others. Mastering a three turn on your bad foot is a call to celebrate just as much as landing your first triple is!
