There are about 300 young people involved in figure skating in
Estonia. Plus, of course, the hundreds who
play hockey and the thousands who skate for fun. This number may seem small when
compared to America for example, but after I have described the situation here a bit
more, you'll understand why we don't have any more skaters and maybe there also lays
the reason why we don't have any international champion skaters yet.
