FIGURE SKATING EXPLAINED

Figure skating, according to Wikipedia, is a sport and activity in which individuals, duos, or groups perform or figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908.[1] The four Olympic disciplines are men’s singles, ladies’ singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. Non-Olympic disciplines include synchronized skating and four skating. In senior-level competition, skaters generally perform two programs (short and long) which, depending on the discipline, may include spins, jumps, moves in the field, lifts, throw jumps, death spirals, and other elements or moves.
