PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Haiti's on-again, off-again ice-skating show has been postponed again.
Organizer Francois Yrius said that half of the show's dozen performers missed their flights to the Caribbean nation for the show that was supposed to start Friday. He says the performers are now due to arrive on Saturday, and the show should begin on Sunday.
The four-day "Haiti on Ice" show aims to bring together several international figure skaters, including Russian-born figure skater Elena Glebova and the French pair skater Yannick Bonheur.
But the performances have been postponed more than a dozen times since they were first planned for November. Young Haitians began using the ice rink this week to learn how to skate.
The delays have been blamed on problems including melting ice and a hurricane that brushed Haiti.
