Confusion in our sport

Posted: January 15, 2011 in Sport, Xtreme Ice Skating

I’ve never done this before, but I wish do it now and with some decency and respect. There are videos posted all the time on youtube that are either Xtreme Ice Skating or freestyle but don’t reflect the actual discipline shown in the respective video. For instance, an Xtreme Ice Skating video would be called “freestyle” OR similarly, a freestyle video would be called Xtreme Ice Skating. Here’s an example of a video that says extreme ice skating (sport implied even though not exactly the same spelling), but is really freestyle:

This is really FREESTYLE, not Xtreme Ice Skating:

It’s an honest mistake made by the person who posted the video above. But all due respect to them for caring about their work. However, sometimes confusion causes greater confusion one might say. It’s important everyone be brought to the attention of this matter. This is not the ONLY video that confuses; there have been many. I did however want to bring this to the attention of the public.

By the way, here’s another video of confusion but instead of it being like the video above, it’s posted as “Freestyle” but should really be Xtreme Ice Skating:
