Figure skating

Other Disciplines
Synchronized skating
also known as precision skating. It can be for mixed-gender groups of 12 to 20 skaters. The basic formations include wheels, blocks, lines, circles, and intersections.
Olympic Disciplines
competition for men and women where the skaters preform in jumps, spins, step sequences, spirals, and other elements in their programs.
What is Figure Skating

Figure skating is a sport and activity in which singles, duets, or groups perform on figure skates. This was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908. The four Olympic kinds of figure skating are mens singles, ladies singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. There are also Non-Olympic kinds like synchronized skating and four skating.
The blade has a groove on the bottom creating two specific edges inside and outside. In figure skating, the skater should skate on one edge of the blade and not on both at the same time, which is called a flat edge. Skates used in single and pair skating, have a set of large, jagged teeth called toe picks on the front of the blade. Ice dancing blades are an inch shorter in the rear and have smaller toe picks or toe racks, they are for jumping. Blades are about 4 mm thick.

The Rink
There are different kinds of ice rinks, but the International Skating Union [ISU] prefers Olympic-sized rinks for figure skating competitions, particularly events such as the Olympics. A zamboni is a vehicle used to clean and smooth the surface of an ice sheet at a rink. It was named after Frank Zamboni, who created it in 1949.
Pair skating
teams that have a woman and a man. Pairs perform specific to the stunts such as throw jumps, in which the man 'throws' the woman into a jump lift, in which the woman is held above the man's head. Pair spins, in which both skaters spin together about a common axis and death spirals.
Ice dancing
Is for couples of a woman and a man skating together. Ice dancing which focuses on footwork performed in close dance position ,that is in time with the music. Ice dance lifts must not go above the shoulder.

a discipline in which a team of four skaters, with two men and two women, perform in singles and pairs , as well they do formations that involve all four skaters.
Theatre on ice,
also known as "ballet on ice" in Europe. This is a form of skating that is less structured than synchronized skating and allows the skater to use props and theatrical costumes.
Adagio skating,
a form of pair skating mostly seen in ice shows, where the skaters perform many acrobatic lifts but the lifts are not the competitive, like how they preform in the Olympics.
Acrobatic skating,
also known as "Acrobatics on ice" or "Extreme Skating", is a combination of circus moves technical moves of gymnastics skills, and figure skating.

Jumps involve the skater leaping into the air and rotating again and again, to land after completing one or more spins in the air. There are many different types of jumps, identified by the way the skater takes off and lands, as well as by the number of spins that are completed.
Each jump receives a score according to its value and GOE [Quality of execution]the jumps require technique, height, speed, the flow and ice coverage there all considered by the judges.
The number of spins performed in the air determines whether the jump is a single, double, triple, or quadruple (known commonly as a "quad"). Senior-level {olympiac level of skating} male singles skaters mostly preform triple and quadruple jumps in a competition. Triple jumps other than the Axel are most commonly performed by female single skaters. Only one female skater, Miki Ando, has done a quadruple jump in an international competition.
Some skaters can finish a jump in about one second. The takeoff speed of a jump can reach up to 15 mph.
Edge jumps use no toe assist, and include:
which take off from either the left or right back inside edge, the opposite leg helps launch the jump into the air and land on one foot.
Axels, which are the only spin jump to take off from a forward edge. they include one-half extra spins and are considered the hardest jump of all six jumps.

Toe jumps are launched by tapping the toe pick of one skate into the ice, and include (in order of difficulty from easiest to hardest)
Toe loops take off from the back outside edge of the left or right foot and are launched by the opposite toe pick
Flips, which take off from the back inside edge of the right or left foot and are launched by the opposite toe pick;
Lutzes, which take off from the back outside edge of the right or left foot and are launched by the opposite toe pick.

The International Skating Union (ISU) is the governing the international competitions in figure skating, including the World Championships and the figure skating at the Winter Olympic Games. The medal colors are gold for first place, silver for second, and bronze for third place but U.S. Figure Skating also awards medals for fourth-place finishers in national events.
In singles and pairs figure skating competitions, competitors must perform two programs, whitc are the short and long programs. In the short program which the skater must complete a list of mandatory moves such as jumps, spins and steps. The free skate, also known as the long program, in which the skaters have a little more choice of moves.
For competitive programs, figure skaters are generally not allowed to have Vocal music, it is allowed only if it contains no lyrics or words. In 1997–1998 the International Skating Union decided to have lyrics or words in ice dancing music. The ban continued in singles and pair skating, however, judges do not always give penalty for having words in music.
Ice dancers are required to skate to music that has a beat or rhythm. Singles and pair skaters more often skate to melodys for their music. For long programs, figure skaters often search for music with different moods and tempos.
Skaters are generally free to select their own outfit, with a few dress code rules. In competition, females may wear a dress, typically with matching attached briefs, and since 2004, they may also choose trousers.The ladies may wear opaque flesh-colored leggings or tights under dresses and skirts, which may go to cover their skates. Men must wear trousers – they are not allowed to wear tights, although the judges do not always take points away.
