I did some arithmetic. Its your turn.

An ice skate is something like 3 mm wide and about 150 mm long.So that's about 450 square mm And a 75Kg skater puts about 750 N on that area. So that's roughly 2 N per square mm or 2MN per square metre. Roughly 20 atmospheres pressure.Now the depression of freezing point of water with pressure is about 0.01 degrees per atmosphere. So the melting point of the ice under a skate is something like -0.2 degrees Celsius.So, if the temperature was below that (and it almost always will be) the material under a skate is solid ice, rather than liquid water.So, even if there was some magic form of liquid water, it couldn't possibly be relevant to ice skating.Why didn't you do a little arithmetic when I told you to, to avoid foolishly sticking to an impossible story?
