GARY BEACOM SPONSORSHIP APPEAL
Dear Figure-Skating aficionados, health and fitness enthusiasts:
I am pleased to announce a new sponsorship opportunity!
I have made a career of figure skating for over half a century, first as a competitor in Canadian, World, and Olympic Championships, then as a professional ice show performance artist, and now as a
competitor in adult skating competitions around the world.
I have a unique experience and knowledge of figure skating, unlike that of other coaches, world competitors, and officials, past or present. With a BSc in Physics and Philosophy achieved the same
year, 1984, as I competed in the Olympics in Sarajevo, I have continued on the pursuit of excellence in sport, and figure skating in particular, as a theoretical and empirical researcher by
examining for last 50 years.
It has been my pleasure to inspire people in the joy of sport as a challenge in itself, and also as part of a holistic lifestyle of fitness and health by showing my performance and sharing my
knowledge and experience through my Blade Master Seminar. My adventure of discovery delves into not only figure skating technique, but also into maintenance of body, mind, and soul to enhance
performance. Specifically, I have focused on progression of skills and drills to maximize progress, to the application of physics in biomechanical analysis, and to a balanced training regimen and
sense of self-preservation to increase energy and reduce the chance of injury and illness. This involves diet, cross-training, figure skating practice wisdom, breathing, worldly awareness for
artistic expression, and respect for people, animals, and the environment to achieve spiritual growth.
I have many projects, inventions, and skills that I have not been able to realize because of resource limitations. This is unfortunate for advancement of the figure skating and sports community. I
was invited in 21st Eis-Cup Innsbruck 2016 to perform I'm Your Man to pay tribute for Leonard Cohen. It is very important to practice this choreography and perform in public again as I requested by
fans and skaters. I am able to share a lot of my skating knowledge and experience through this performance.
My ideal contribution would necessitate a figure skating academy. In such a scenario, I would value cooperation instead of cliques, mutual encouragement instead of envy, tolerance and patience
instead of abusive anger and aggression, and knowledge instead of power. I would prioritize sportsmanship and open dialogue. I would welcome and support skaters, parents, spectators, instructors, and
specialists. I would avoid corporate control and funding that is not genuinely supportive of health, fitness, and truth.
My devotion to figure skating is total. I do not engage in activities that do not directly support to researching and development of figure skating cultures. I am very happy there are six places
already gave me inquiry to have me perform I'm Your Man, and I would like to continue expanding this tour.
Humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit. Without
doubt, these dreamers do not deserve wealth, because they do not desire it. Even so, a well-organized society should assure to such workers the efficient means of accomplishing their task, in a life
freed from material care and freely consecrated to research. -Marie Curie, scientist, Nobel laureate (7 Nov 1867-1934)
