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.

How much has bowling changed since it was invented?

For starters, in the five thousand-plus years since bowling was invented, it has moved from an outdoor sport to an indoor one. The number of pins has been standardized, as have their weight and distance from the foul line. The dimensions of the lane, and the size and allowable weight of the bowling ball has also been fixed.

In more recent times, technology has improved the bowling pin (plastic is both bouncier and more durable than wood), the bowling equipment (automatic pinspotters mean that pin boys no longer have to risk injury to set up pins), the lane (urethane has replaced wood, and is less prone to warping), and the ball (with more aggressive surfaces, and asymmetrical [unbalanced] cores designed to take advantage of physical laws like gyroscopic motion to deliver a bigger and harder hook).
