Does being taller make skating harder?

Size does not matter in skating, what makes someone a good skater is co-ordination.. Yes muscle strength and practice are big parts, with could muscle co-ordination it is hard to form the stride, hold balance and pick up the feet all with timing. Taller people generally seem to have less co-ordination though

Chara is not an excellent skater.. I would say he is above average... Myers is definitely an excellent skater
