    Funny you say to check your facts . . . Charlene Wong skated in the 1988 Olympics, not 1998. 🙂

    Hi 🙂 This is Charlene Wong. I have been a vegatarian for almost 30 years and I would be considered by some to be vegan but I wear leather skates and ocasionally drink dairy in coffee/ tea. 🙂 I was in the ’88 Olympics for Canada.

      I was hoping for someone to turn up with a reference – but it’s great to have you turn up and set the record straight yourself. So thank you for commenting!

      I’ve corrected it.

      @Charlene, how great of you be so open, honest and to share here. Do they even make non-leather vegan ice skates? I don’t think so! That’s awesome that you’ve been living a compassionate healthy lifestyle for so long. In doing so you inspire others to do the same. The occasional coffee/tea can’t take that away. 🙂
