Four skaters leave us wanting more

Dazzling. Soaring. Mesmerizing.

What more can you say about the performances of Manatee's Amanda Evora, Mark Ladwig, Caydee Denney and Jeremy Barrett in Monday night's long program of the Olympic pairs figure skating at the 2010 Winter Games?

Though their chances at a medal were remote, finishing in the world's top 10 would be like a gold medal, said one NBC commentator.

Both routines were a joy to watch.

Their music was beautiful, too.

Evora-Ladwig performed to Rachmaninoff's "Concerto No. 2."

Denney-Barrett skated to Ravel's "Scheherazade," one of my favorites, an enchanting piece of instrumental music that suited their performance.

It's a shame their skating -- and music -- at the 2010 Winter Games is over after just three days.

On the other hand, what's that they say in show biz?

Always leave them wanting more.

Mark Ladwig and Amanda Evora
