Men's Olympic Figure Skater Channels Chaplin in Skate

Unread post by missdupont » Fri Feb 16, 2018 2:13 am

Currently in second place, Javier Fernandez of Spain used the score of "Modern Times" for his short program tonight, aping Chaplin's movements in certain sections. A nod to silent film in a place you wouldn't expect it!

I was tempted to post about this this morning, but you beat me to it. Excellent skate, and a delightful surprise!
