About 10 years ago Comcast used to have a news network based on Philadelphia although one show at night was in Boston cohosted by former Evening Magazine hosts.

Anyways just about every weekend in the winter they showed competitive figure skating. Nancy Kerrigan was an analyst. One event which I loved was the team skating (I think it was officially called synchronized skating) which had about 8 figure skating working together as a team doing things in synch. There were a bunch of teams and one team would team.

I never understood why this never got beyond low level competition. Why didn't this become an Olympic Sport or at least in the International arena or even US Figure Skating Championships? Is it because its dangerous?

I would actually rather see this as an event in the Olympics rather then the Team figure skating we just had. It would add variety to the figure skating events.

Anyone know?
