LOOK WHAT’S HAPPENING AT LMFSC!


PAUL WYLIE BRINGS HIS OLYMPIC SPIRIT TO LAKE MINNETONKA FIGURE SKATING CLUB

Paul Wylie, the self-professed “Ambassador” of figure skating, is a welcomed messenger to all who are witness to or feel the magic that happens when a skater’s blades touch the smooth surface of ice.  With a perennial smile, Paul Wylie guided LMFSC skaters through a three-day skating clinic which included off-ice conditioning classes to enhance on-ice skills, private lessons to focus on nuance, and a friendly competition to practice interpretative skills.  During his time at LMFSC Mr. Wylie delivered a key note address, graciously answered questions and posed for pictures.  The Olympic Silver Medalist shared stories about the challenges he faced both on and off the ice during his figure skating career.  He spoke eloquently about how he learned to change his perspective of those challenges and create something positive that fueled his ambition and propelled him toward his skating dreams.  He also spoke candidly about the challenge of balancing the responsibilities of life and the power of believing in yourself when others may not.  Although his visit was brief, Paul Wylie’s generous spirit was inspirational.  Dream big, work hard and believe in yourself.  LMFSC is truly fortunate to have shared some of the magic with this beloved messenger.
