Much-delayed 'Haiti on Ice' show finally goes on

Posted:
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -

Haiti's much-delayed ice-skating show has finally begun.

   The four-night run of "Haiti on Ice" was supposed to have been last November. But snags such as an ice rink that kept melting and a hurricane last year were blamed for a dozen-plus delays.

   The holdups turned the show into a something of a joke. Many weren't sure it would actually happen.

   But it did. The 50-minute show Monday night brought a handful of international skaters before a light crowd in a basketball gym in downtown Port-au-Prince. The skaters did flips and twirls and carried torches.

   The performers included Fernand Fedronic of France and Shawn Sawyer of Canada.

   The show was organized by a company from Guadeloupe.
