Speed Skating Ladies 1000m
Transcript of Speed Skating Ladies 1000m
Newton's First Law says that an object at rest remains at rest and an object in motion remains in motion. In speed skating, the skater is at rest until he starts. In the Second Law, if you have force on an object, it will produce acceleration. The force is the skate blade, the object is the ice, and then as the person pushes, it produces acceleration. Newton's Third Law applies to speed skating with the basic push. Think about action and reaction. With every action, there is a reaction. If you think about pushing a wall, the wall is also pushes you. It is the same with any type of skating. As you bend and push off the ice, the ice applies an equal force on you, and then you move forward. The harder they push, the faster they will go.
The first Winter Olympics for men's speed skating was in 1924. It was 36 years later, when they included women's speed skating in 1960. But before they were included in the Olympics, there were speed skating events held in Britain in 1763.
Speed skating was the most popular sport in Russia up until the 19th century. Everyone could try it. Many families came to the Patriarch's Pond in Moscow, and they skated to an accompaniment of a brass band.
Speed skaters usually wear...
Skin-tight racing suits with hoods, to reduce air resistence
Special clap skates, where the blade isn't attached to the boot. These boots are made of kangaroo leather.
