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.
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.
They all have there strengths and weaknesses i would have to say though it would be the all around characters they seem to have more skills than the rest and can most of the time beat them at other events but if you are running a relay against sonic than hang it up.
ACCTULLY SILVERS BEST Sonic is the best
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.
It will be held April 24 to may 1, in Moscow.
The special figures contest was won by Russian Nikolai Panin, who gave his country its first ever Olympic gold medal. He remains the event's sole winner, as it was subsequently dropped from the program. Ice dance joined as a medal sport in 1976, after appearing as a demonstration event at Grenoble 1968.
Robert Jones invented figure skating after is father died. Because is father always said do something speicial in life make history for me when I come to death . So Robert Jones made history figure skating has been here for centuries and it will always be here until the end of time . If that will every happen . He invented so there can be a new sport in lives or lif(e) . Such as soccer, hockey, baseball, basketball,speed skating , tennis, lacorse , racket ball, all types and that is what the man did followed his dad's words and made history ! Great Job, Robert Jones and thank you I love figure skating
I am a figure skater myself and i have seen all different sizes of figure skaters on the ice! It doesnt matter what kind of body shape u have or size! Lets be honest it would be harder for a larger size person or a taller person to get themselves off the ice and into the air in many jumps such as ( Axel, Double sow, Double toe, Double loop, Double flip, Double axel, and tripple jumps). Most of the girls i see skating are small and short but there is some taller girls and larger girls aswell. I think no matter the shape size and Height of your body, i think if u keep your mind set on your goal (eg. landing a jump/ learning a spin) you can accomplish anything! That go's for all sports and activities!
Hope this helped :-)
Lyudmila Pakhomova and Aleksandr Gorshkov of the Soviet Union.

Field hockey was added to the Olympic summer program in 1908. It was removed in 1924, for lack of a governing international body, but readded in time for 1928 and has been played at every Summer Games since. Women's hockey was also added in 1980.
Ice hockey was added to the Olympic summer program in 1920. It was then moved to the winter program in 1924 and has been played at every Winter Games since. Women's hockey was also added in 1998, after IOC approval in 1992.
Because it is good excercise and healthy for your body.
And also I skate myself and I am totally in love with it! It's really fun because you can go with your friends and family and just have a great time!

Figrue skating is a sport that uses practically all of the bodies muscles. Of course, all of the leg muscles are used the most because of all the jumps and spins. The arm muscles are used frequently due to having to hold them up and all of the falling which a skater will put their arm out to catch themselves. Falling alone can contribute to muscular arms. The abdominals are also used in figure skating because of the spins and jumps where having a strong trunk is a necessity to be a good skater. Hope this helps!
Figure skating isn't "PLAYED" we compete in competitions. the first competition was in Thunder-Bay Ontario. biggest city in northwestern ontario.
there's two in each category w/ one runner up
Sonja Henie, the great Norwegian singles skater won 3 straight golds in 1928, 1932, and 1936. Irina Rodnina, a pairs skater from the USSR, won 3 straight titles with two different partners in 1972, 1976, 1980.
The sport known as figure skating has been known for a couple of centuries. The first known paper written on it is by Englishman Robert Jones in 1772. The American "father" of figure skating is Jackson Haines who developed the "modern" style from which the current sport has been developed. From the pictures of the time of Jackson Haines, he also developed the first skating costume...and possibly the current styling of men's undergarments, although I have not researched this theory. But.... A lesser known member of the tribe called Crank invented figure skating...and ice skating in the process. Crank was an curious child, always getting into mischief. He had this habit of wandering off after Rhonda to see what she would find. But, being a child, he would get tired and simply lie down and go to sleep wherever he was. The tribe would often find him in the fields around the encampment fast asleep, and when they woke him (he was a bit big to simply pick up by one person) he was short tempered and irritable, so they named him Crank. One fine morning, Rhonda decided to make an expedition near the Kokonee mountain to see what else the area contained. She had never been entirely satisfied with the previous two expeditions and just knew that there had to be something else worthwhile in that area beside the huge mountain. Crank saw her making preparations and he grabbed his own purse and followed her out of the camp. As Rhonda strode purposefully into the wilderness, Crank was fascinated by the many wonders of the area outside of the camp. He had seen some of the smaller animals, but the medium animals were an unknown. On the second day, Crank found himself lagging farther and farther behind Rhonda, but he gamely moved in her footsteps trying to catch up. But it was no use; a child simply could not keep up with the much swifter and more fit Rhonda. By this time Crank could see the top of the mountain however, so he knew that Rhonda was making a line for it. Immediately he figured that this was a total bust, so he cast about for a reasonable place to make a mini camp for himself. He soon found a rather shallow but wide stream near a stand of trees and sat down to rest. As he munched on cold paste that Sheila had cooked the day before, he casually looked around. The trees (as usual) were oozing that sticky stuff that was so hard to get off the body, and there were a couple of smallish animals frolicking in the underbrush. Seeing nothing to alarm him, he set about making a fire for the evening to discourage those animals from disturbing him. While he slept, the night grew very cold as was usual for those parts, and the little stream froze over. Crank was warm and comfortable so he didn't even notice much lower temperature until the next morning when he awoke. He noticed the crispness in the air and quickly killed a bird for breakfast. After finishing the bird, he set off to go back to camp. However...he had forgotten that the stream was between him and the path back to the camp. As all children will, he simply decided to cross the stream again and continue on his way. But he only took a couple of steps when he landed flat on his backside. The water was hard and he soon found out that it was very slippery too. He managed to get back to the bank with the aid of some refuse dotting the shoreline and went back to his camp to ponder the problem. As he arrived at his campsite, the bird bones were the first thing to catch his eye. Since he thought that he needed something for traction on the slippery stuff, the breast bone looked like just the thing because the sharp edge looked like it would bite into the hard water. He slipped his mukluk into the ribcage of the bird and it indeed fit. So, taking it off, he immediately killed another bird and speedily skinned and removed the meat. Now he had two ribcages to work with, so he went back to the icy stream with his bird bones. Crank shoved his feet into the bones and gingerly tried the stream. Instead of falling immediately, he was able to glide over the ice on that breast bone! Even as he fell from the lack of balance, he was intrigued. Struggling to regain his feet, he made it and by slowly and carefully shifting his weight, he was able to glide across the ice. Soon Crank was gliding across the ice with ever greater control and precision. His aim improved tremendously, and in a very few minutes, he was enthralled with the swiftness of his progress across the ice. Not since Powl had had his accident had anyone moved so swiftly. He discovered by accident that if one turned the foot just a bit, one could go in circles. Voila! The first skating figure. As he turned the circle, he noticed that the pattern was still on the ice. He retraced the circle, then inspected his handiwork, becoming the first Ice Skating Judge, since one's self is the hardest judge to please. This was fun stuff ideed..much better than following Rhonda! As Crank grew more absorbed in his new occupation, he never noticed that the sun was rising higher in the sky and to his dismay, the ice started to become soft and it broke in chunks around his skates. Swiftly moving to the other side of the shallow brook, he removed his ribcages and went on his way back toward the camp. But his new passtime intrigued him so much that he didn't fall asleep on the way back. Arriving at the camp late in the afternoon, he found a few playmates and told them of his fun new sport. The next few days saw a huge increase in industry among the young population as they all wanted to try the new passtime. About a dozen children became avid hunters of birds and in the process, became critics of the various skeletons as to durability and function on that shallow brook. The tribe had an increase in provender and the children were becoming independent which made their mothers somewhat alarmed. Crank became very popular; so much so that his sleep was interrupted by the other eager novices in this new sport. He grumpily led expeditions to the brook and demonstrated the technique to his pupils. On one of these expeditions, he was so irritable that he leaped upon the ice. To everyone's surprise, he not only stayed upright, but because of the way he landed on his bones...he started to spin. Crank had invented the flying spin, perfected many eons later by the famous Dick Button. The tribe was so enthralled by Crank's new achievement that to this day we remember him. Crank It Up isn't about music...it's about how Crank invented figure skating.
If referring to Winter Olympic Games, she has won once in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics; Including all of the events she has taken, she has 9 gold medals. (The only way the previous answer would be correct was if Minhyeok4 was referring to world championships.
