I just read this article. Thanks for the great interview! It is very interesting and informative reading, and as always, I like the way reut asks questions. The pictures are lovely as well. (Thanks, Tamar!) I find her to be mature, thoughtful, polite and honest. It was really nice to learn a lot about this elite Israeli skater and the situation with figure skating in Israel. I just can't take my eyes off her
One day the guards called me off the ice and into his office. I barely spoke English at the time and I thought I was in trouble because skaters are not allowed to be without parental supervision. They took my skates away and brought me my shoes. Then Walter came and put a pair of white skates on my feet. He said something but I didn't understand. So he pointed to the ice and I understood that he meant, "go skate". He gave me my very first pair of skates and said that I should always remember where my first pair of skates came from.
What a touching story. I hope she will find out his family name. I think if his family hears from Tamar, they would be glad.
