Mostly Spandex. Short track suits have some sort of protection material in the shins. And some also have some Kevlar in sensitive areas.
out side fabric is around 20% spandex and 80% polyester for print different artwork onto the suit. Normally it's lycra fabric from DuPont
Inner side is kevlar protect some important part of body, some peaple need protect all part of body, but with more expensive cost.
We can help to make such short track skating suits for you if you need, this is my email address: email@example.com
Mixture of alot of skating, with alot of gym work on their legs and abbs.
First of all, they need start young, and have to just LOVE figure skating that they cannot live without practice. But the most important thing is their body shape, length, size, and weight. They need to be long(but if figure skaters are too tall, they wouldn't look natural, because the blade is like 5cm long.)and thin but have big and thick bones. This allows them to be able to jump high and ride smoothly. Also, they have to be pretty, especially if they are girls, because if they are not pretty, even if their skills are excellent, you cannot see the talent in that girl. They have to be able to control theirselves, because they cannot have much fat in their body. A lot of fat means less skills to figure skate. They have to control what they eat, and when they eat. For example, Yuna Kim, the Korean goldmedalist, she is beatiful, not too tall, not too short, skinny, has long legs, not much fat, skillful, practices a lot, has big and thick bones, log arms, small boobs(which does not shake when she jumps, so helpful-no offense, Yuna!^^), light movements, and etc. I am not Korean, but personally, I think she is a perfect example of golden section. * Yuna started taking figure skating seriously at the age of 7.
It depends where about in the world you'd like to know. I hear in certain places in Australia and America there are roller skate break dancing and competitions as for the younger generation it can be very fun. But in England roller skating is not very popular, but that doesn't mean you can't start a craze!

Yes the weight does affect the speed of a skateboard.....if your 90 pounds and your ridding with a 105 pound person the 90 pound person will go faster!!!!
In speed skating the milliseconds are very important, especially in the 100m. 9.58 is the 100m world record. In speed skating there are many different age categories. There is "Open" which is people of any age, usually the fastest people. The Olympics and World Cups are open, it does not matter how old you are. When you are still a kid, or teenager you are in divisions of every 2 years. It's like high school sports, when you're a junior you with grade 9's AND 10's. When senior your with 11's and 12's. However there is still usually an open category for the fastest skaters.
As 100 meters race: 9.40 seconds (Yuya Oikawa). In a 500 meter race, the first 100 meters are also clocked: the fastest there is 9.37 seconds (Masaaki Kobayashi). Ladies the times are 10.21 and 10.13 respectivly (by Jenny Wolf).
That the first hundred meters time over 500 meter is faster than the official record, is probably due to the fact that 100 meters are rarely skated, and 500 meters very often.
Light weight and strong helmets, boots, protective clothing can now be used due to use of composite materials
i usually wear whatever i have on i dont go out of my way to act all "skater" i do what i do.. but most people wear skinny jeans,baggy pants,skateing shirts.. almost all my shirts are skateing shirtts
bobsleds can sometimes have short boosts of up to around 120 km/h. luge/skeleton sleds usually obtain about 90-100 km/h.
Unfortunately most kids don't get enough exposure to the sport, and therefore don tlike it because they don't know about it. But if your wondering weather to out a child into the program, then i severely encourage you to. The sport is fun, and the people are nice, so come on out :)
Once you reach a high level of compatition in speed skating, you do whats called "Single Distance Championships". This is when a person only competes in his/her best distance, Some people do more than one distance, but many perfer to just focouson one.
Therefore there is no one winner for 1990, there would be winners for both male and female, and for every distance. There is the 500m, 1000m, 1500m and 3K races, there may be more but those are the basic and most common ones.
The key to reaching any goal, such as becoming a champion speed skater, is to get guidance or instruction and then practice, practice and then practice some more! Just like playing an instrument or writing or anything that you do in your life, practice and guidance are very important factors. You need to be able to be aware of how to let's say speed skate properly and by practicing, you'll improve your skills. You should remember this when your trying to reach any goal in your lifetime, especially if you want to be the champion. Anyone is capable of anything! =D
That all depends on the skater, obviously, and what distance they're skating. Quick research reports that they can average 30 mph, but sprint up to around 37 mph.

There is no right answer to your question. there can be 5, 2, or 12.
short track speed skating is speed skating on a smaller track, the size of a hockey rink
