Feb 19th 2010 9:38AM Kevin Blackistone knows little about figure skating or athletics in general. To master skating technique, one must be in IMPECCABLE physical shape. In addition to jumps, skaters must master footwork and spins which are equally physically challenging - and do so in a well-choreographed and well-presented exercise. Choreography and presentation, when done well, may look easy but they are VERY physically challenging. It is simply idiotic to imply that Lysacek's program was any less physically demanding than Plushenko's,
