There are some major differences between the Sonic Skate-Off and an Olympic Games skating event, but you wouldn't know it the way Sonic's Carhop finalists are talking. To the five guys who've beat out hundreds of the fast food joint's other skating waiters, this is the biggest moment of their careers.

You've got to be accurate, and you've got to be fast. The rules of Freestyle are a little more liberal: Show off your most impressive moves, and do it with flare.
