88-Year-Old Figure Skater I Steve Harvey

88-Year-Old Figure Skater I Steve Harvey

– Before we go, I’d like to take a moment to talk about this woman. There’s an 88-year old, Coralie Raunig, who after taking a 45-year
hiatus from ice skating, took it up when she was 65-years old. – [Woman] Wow! – Now although everybody
thought she was crazy for returning to such a slippery
sport as a senior citizen, she not only succeeded but she
became a fierce competitor. Now, recently taking home the award for being the oldest competitor in the Adult Figure Skating Championships. – [Crowd] Wow, woo hoo. – Well, joining us now is Miss Raunig. (audience cheering) Miss Coralie, how you doing, ma’am? – I’m doing great, thank you. – Yeah, you’re looking
good, too, there, I see ya. – I feel good. – Well, if you ice skating, I bet you do. All I can think about is if I had fell. My wife did an ice skating rink at our house for Christmas for the kids, I couldn’t go out there, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t risk falling. You’re not worried about the falling part? – Falling is part of figure
skating, ice skating. You learn to fall, you pick yourself up, and you keep on going. (audience cheering) It’s just a part of the skate. – So, Miss Coralie, let
me ask you this question. How often do you go out there and train? – I train twice a week
for an hour each time. – Really? Who designs these amazing outfits and costumes that you wear? – I have a wonderful coach that we design, we figure out the music
that I’m gonna skate, and then we design the costumes together. And then I sew them so they fit my body and we sort of combine with
this, we work together. – Wow, let me, well. (audience clapping) Miss Coralie, what do you say
to all those people out there who tell you that you’re too old? – Really I kind of laugh
at them but I tell them, no, you should get out there and skate. When I’m skating, if I have things that I
might’ve worried about, you don’t worry about them at all. You have freedom and
you’re really on your own, and you just skate. So, I tell them to join
me and see what it’s like. – Wow, well Miss Coralie, all I can say is you are truly, truly an inspiration. I really enjoyed watching you out there, and you inspired me, I might go skating. (audience cheering) I might go and try.
– We welcome you. – Thank you so much, darling. That’s our show for today. If you wanna see some
