Figure Skating - The Games in Pyeongchang History
For people living in countries that experience cold winters, the chance to put on a pair of ice skates and head to the frozen lake or pond has thrilled people down countless generations. It has been argued that the Dutch were the pioneers of ice skating as they used to skate down the canals in winter to communicate with other villages. This soon spread across the channel to England and throughout the rest of Europe. In 1850, it was two Americans that revolutionized the sport by adding steel blades to the skates which allowed for complex moves and turns.
Figure Skating is the oldest sport in the Games having first been contested at the 1908 London Games. There are four figure skating events in total - Men's, Women's, Pairs and the hugely popular Ice Dancing.
