Challenge has finished
As one of the most popular and accessible activities available to people of all ages and abilities, the act of strapping on the blades and taking a spin on a sheet of ice provides shooting opportunities like no other sport. Either dig down into your archives or head out to the pond and show us the beauty of gliding along on a thin piece of steel over frozen water.
