ice hockey, in-line skating and roller blading
Not usually. Sometimes if you are doing things with other people, grabbing your own blades, or fall akwardly, you will get cut. I've been skating for 12 years and have only gotten cut once.
Probably, Michelle Kwan is the most famous skater in the world. She is known as figure skating legend, with two medals in the olympic games, and five gold medals in world championship.
Also, Yu-na Kim and Asada Mao are the current most famous and popular skaters.
Neither, really. It mostly depends on what you decide to start with. People who skate in hockey skates generally fall over on the toe picks when they try figure skates, and even accomplished figure skaters say they feel like they're gonna fall over when they put on hockey skates. So it's pretty subjective.
One thing I can say from personal experience, figure skates encourage much better posture and skating technique than hockey skates, as figure skates require you to straighten your back out much more to skate in/not fall over on the toepicks in them compared to hockey skates, I started in hockey skates and switched to figure like a week ago, so yeah.
The only bad part of figure skates is, if you get a higher end pair to just start out in, the toe picks will be close to the ice, so if you lean forward much at all, you'll fall on your face. The other issue is, up to about the 80s, figure skates were made of a single layer of leather, that you could move your ankle around in, like a combat boot. I find these really really hard to skate in, due to the lack of ankle support, compared to hockey boots. I'm sure if you start in them, you can eventually get used to them, but after starting in hockey skates, I could not at all. However, newer figure skates are as stiff/stiffer than most hockey skates, so that's no longer an issue, but I'm just saying this if you find some cheap $20 brand new Chinese "figure skates" or find some older skates at a garage sale or something.
To win Olympic gold in the ladies' figure staking. Unfortunaly, she never won gold. He best is a sliver at the 1998 Nagano Winer Olympics.
If it's your first Double Axel attempt, you need to do some walk-throughs first. (A walk-through is where you walk out the jump without actually jumping.) Now you are ready to try from stand-still. Position your feet so that your left is facing where you want to jump, and your right is behind your left, in a perpendicular manner. This is a "T" position. Now, push off with your right foot and glide with your left for a short while. During this time, you need to bend your right leg and bring your right knee forwards. Once your knee is in front of your body, you will push off the ice with your left foot and rotate two and a half times around, landing on your right leg.
**This jump takes a lot of patience and practice.
yes you can get figure skates but you can also figure skate in normal skates aswell xx
i am a 12 yr old figure skater and what momentum has to do with it is if you jump or spin, you need alot of momentum to get you to jump higher!
SOrry, 12 year old girl, you arent allwoed on this site. Be gone.
It wasn't really an injury but a condition known as 'chronic exertional compartment syndrome' which caused serious pain in her legs due to muscles not receiving a proper supply of blood. She had surgery to relieve the condition.
She returned to competition at the 2009 Canadian Championship and won the gold medal with partner Scott Moir.
Dorothy Hamill dropped out of Eastern Junior High School (grades 7-9) in Riverside Connecticut. She received private tutoring while pursuing her skating career. It is unclear if she earned a high school diploma.
Jane lives in Manchester!!
Absolutely, you can skate on your hockey skates before you bake them. In fact, depending on how the boot fits, it's actually recommended.
What baking actually does is cause accelerated breakdown of the boot. It heats all the bindings and seams of the boot so that that it can expand and form to your foot allowing for a more comfortable fit. If, when you first put the boot on, you have slightly painful pressure-points or tightness on your foot, then baking is the best way to relieve or remove these problems. If, on the other hand, the boot feels good when you first put it on, then baking isn't necessary or required. It is actually better to let the boot breakdown naturally through use.
my friends and i call it skating
As of March 2010, it has been confirmed that Christopher Dean had split with his wife, Jill Trenary. So no, Christopher Dean is no longer married.
Sasha Cohen of the United States. She had been a favorite to win, and had a slim lead after the short program, but Sasha is notorious for never being able to skate a clean competition; she usually skates one program beautifully, and makes mistakes in the other, and she did so at the 2006 Olympics. She and Russia's Irina Slutskaya both made mistakes in their free skate, which allowed Shizuka Arakawa to come from third place to win Japan's first gold medal in women's figure skating.
An Axel is when you jump forward into mid-air and turn one and a half rotations in the air.You land backwards on the opposite foot you took off on.
Acceleration is change in velocity. These are vectors that have magnitude and direction. Changing either magnitude (speed) or direction will have the skater be accelerating. SO, if the skater is going at a constant speed of 2m/s in a straight line, he is not accelerating. If he is at a constant speed of 2m/s traveling in a circle (you gave the word "around"), he is accelerating. Going around in circles means there is a force constantly changing your direction. Obviously that force is coming from the skaters legs.

It will be held April 24 to may 1, in Moscow.
Figure skating can be both a team sport and an individual one, but is only an indirect competition. In individual, each skater does their own performance and is graded, then compared with all others in the competition. In pairs or group, the skates in each team will conduct a performance, receiving the grade as a team and then has this compared to other teams in the competition.
Today, females can wear dresses, skirts, or pants. The outfit should be in good taste and relate to the music. In addition to the costume, skaters wear their hair in buns, ponytails, or otherwise out of their face. They also use heavy theatrical make-up so the audience is able to see their features.
You raise once leg and balance and glide on one foot. If you are right footed raise your right foot up and vice versa for left footed. Straighten both knees, and raise your free leg (leg in the air) to at least hip height or 90 degrees. Turn your foot horizontal to the ice, point your foot, and hold leg in that position for as long as intended or desired.
You have to be 16 years old to teach figure skating. But you must also have to pass the level/test that you want to teach for example if i was on intermitted i can't teach senior move in the field or freestyle. If you just want to learn, there is no limit to how old you must be! Find a class for adults or children and get started.
I hope i helped :)
An ice rink, usually affectionately referred to as 'the rink'
