Why are most figure skating moves counterclockwise?

not necessarily. i am a figure skater and i know the answer. some people jump clockwise, because they are right handed, which is known to be more common. if they jump counter clockwise, it means their left handed, which isn't that common.

Remember: Clockwise = to the right

Counterclockwise = to the left

It's physically impossible for someone to rotate to the left and land on the

ROE.

Hi. I am also a figure skater and I'm from Ohio, I agree with your statement about being right handed and going in the right direction. But I did want to discuss with you about your directions!

I just wanted to make that clear. Check a source! And thank you for your time.

When did figure skating become a Winter Olympic sport?

44 years ago

Not so. Figure Skating first appeared in 1908 at the London Summer Games featuring 4 events (one being "special figures" that afterward was not contested separately from the singles event).

Figure Skating next appeared at the 1924 Winter Olympics held in Chamonix, France and with the exception of the 1940 and 1944 Games that were suspended because of WW II, figure skating has been a permanent fixture at the Winter Olympics.

So figure skating has been a Winter Olympics sport for 88 years - double your 44.

Yes. He lost it in a meat-cutting machine while working at a fast food place in high school. The more interesting legend is that he lost it in the Israeli army, but he was never in the Israeli army. He did, however, volunteer in the Galilee during the first Gulf War in 1991.

What are the basic rules of Olympic curling?

The basic object of curling is to place your stone closest to the center of the 12 foot circular target area (the House).

Each team has four players.

A throwers teammates may use brooms or brushes to direct the stone's path. Brushing the ice creates a thin film of water that allows the stone to move more easily.

There are ten ends (much like innings in baseball.)

In each end teams alternate shots until sixteen stones have been thrown (actually, stone slide, they are not literally thrown)

Players throw two of their team's stones then change position, with the best player typically throwing last

Teams get one point for each stone they place closer to the center than the opponents closest stone to the center. Only one team can score per end.

The team who throws the last stone in an end (the Hammer) has a tactical advantage. If Team A scores in an end Team B will have the Hammer in the next end.

Teams with the hammer try to get at least 2 points, teams without the hammer try to limit the other team to 1 point if they cannot score themselves.

If no stones are inside the House at the conclusion of the end no points are scored and the team with the hammer retains it in the next end
The general rules of the game are the same in most places, however some specific rules differ from country to country and according to level of play.

If you're new to the game or playing in a recreational league, the PDF will have all you need to know and more.
Basically, two teams of four people take turns trying to get their stones closer to the button (center circle of the bullseye) for ten innings (called ends). Knocking the opponent's stones out is part of the strategy. For a more extensive explanation of the official rules, see the attached link.

Who was the youngest gold medalist in the Summer Olympics?

The youngest to win Olympic gold was diver marjorie gestring, who, at the age of 13 years and 268 days, won the three meter springboard event at the 1936 Games in Berlin.

In the 1900 Olympics, the Dutch rowing team replaced the coxswain of their coxed pair because they considered him to be too heavy. They replaced him with a young Parisian boy (about 7 to 9 years old) and went on to win the gold medal. However, it is not known which coxswain was given the medal.
