Pro Figure-Skater Uses Chrono Trigger Music, Sadly Does Not Win

Canadian figure skater Kevin Reynolds competed at the Four Continents Championships in Colorado early last month. He only finished eighth, but in our eyes, he was the real winner for his choice of music.

Forgoing the obvious choices of either classical or pop, Reynolds skated along to a medley of music from classic RPG Chrono Trigger and its spiritual successor, Chrono Cross. The orchestral versions are obviously a step above those heard in the actual games; they're taken from Symphonic Fantasies, an orchestral performance series performing Square Enix soundtracks.

    Good stuff. Hearing Scars of Time always reminds me of the Eminence Orchestra...how I miss their concerts and Ayako Ishikawa! :(

    He looks a bit like a JRPG character!

    Maybe he should have tried the fabled Iron Lotus.

    Don't know why 'name' gets deleted now, I frankly find his anti-Plunkett sympathies nourishing and informative!

    Good on him. Looked like a good routine until he fell. Its hard to keep going after one mistake and not make anymore. He held it together really well

    Damn, I think it's time I hit the gym.
