Are you and your family into sports? Does your family have a certain sport that all of you liked doing together? If yes, then you guys are lucky because that sport bonds you together. One of the sport that you and your family will truly enjoy is Ice Skating.
Ice Skating is a sport where you skating not on land but in breezing cold ice. Unfortunately our country is in the tropical zone, meaning we don’t “physically” don’t have ice. Being on that tropical zone is not a problem because SM Supermalls gets to solve that for us. SM Supermalls like SM MALL of Asia has SM Ice Skating. People of all ages get to enjoy Ice Skating basically by visiting SM Ice Skating.
Just last Saturday, September 15, 2012, SM Ice Skating celebrated their 20th year of bringing kids, teens and even families together and enjoy the wonderful sport of Ice Skating.
Not only the families who benefits but also the aspiring Ice Skater enthusiasts, who gets to practice awesome spins, jumps, foot-works and ice exhibitions, to become highly competitive athletes more than capable to compete around the globe.
Last Saturday, I am not merely a spectator to this awesome sport. I also become a fan. Who wouldn’t, most specially if you their families root for them as different skaters from the different SM Ice Skating branches come together to perform and showcase their talent in Ice Skating.
Here are some of the photos I would like to share during the 20th Anniversary celebration of SM Ice Skating held at SM Mall of Asia Ice Skating Rink.
Students and coaches from 1992-2012.
The celebration was well-attended by notable people known in the world of Ice Skating scene in the Philippines like Philippine Olympic Committee President, Mr. Jose “Peping” Cojuanco Jr. were also there to show his support.
I couldn’t skate even on rollerblades so I was also amazed seeing even a “mom and daughter” tandem perform. But one performance that really got me hooked was a performance by a former 2-time ice skater/awardee whose name I unfortunately didn’t get to write down. Even now that he is already grown up to be a young lad, he still has the moves and I couldn’t forget to see the passion in his eyes as he performs.
This momentous event will not be possible without the astounding support of Nissan, Uncle Cheffy/Larry and Mau/PizzaHut (who provided the food for the celebration), Coca-Cola, Mogu-Mogu (whom I fell in love with my first of it), Union, Ace Water Spa, Blink Photobooth, Wine Depot, Banana Peel, Converse and Manila Catering.
So if you guys want an exhilarating “cold” and fun sport, try your luck and visit the SM Ice Skating branches like SM SouthMall and the first olympic-sized Ice Skating rink in the Philippines SM Mall of Asia.
