I remember sitting in the seats at Alexandra Palace one day, quite high up, when Hanretty had just got on the ice to warm up.  He was doing a simple power pull exercise but the sound of his edges crunching was fearsome.

Mark Hanretty has beautiful technique and passes some of it on to his DOI partners.  Even if they don't have the nerve to skate on their own, they still generally have the best crossovers!
Returned to the ice in Sept 2017 after a major leg injury in 1999. Skating in Risport Royal Pro and MK Gold Star. Still scary after all these years...

Nice to see Hamish is back in too!
Sliding on frozen water is the easy part of ice skating.

Strange that they brought Hamish back after all the trouble last year, and yet Alex Murphy - who won it and is massively popular - was axed.
