Did you know?!
Neither throws nor jumps are allowed in Ice Dancing; since this event is inspired by technical movements and ballroom dancing, it places most of its techniques in footwork, coordination, and movement. Spins and lifts, while still appropriate, take a bit of a turn from the requirements seen in the other skating events while hydroblading can be used across the board. In fact, hydroblading was popularized in Ice Dancing, partly because it has a higher difficulty, especially when two skaters perform the technique in tandem. Hydroblading occurs when the skater sinks low on one leg with their other leg extended outward to the opposite side. (per funtrivia.com)

Did you know?!
The first figure skating club was founded in 1742 in Edinburgh, Scotland and was comprised entirely of men. In 1865, the Skating Club of Edinburgh finally allowed female members to join the club. In order to be accepted into the Edinburgh Figure Skating Club in the mid-1850s, members were required to be able to skate complete circles on one foot in a figure eight pattern, and then jump over one hat, two hats, and three hats with skates on!

Did you know?!
In 1928, when Sonja Henie was fifteen years old, she became the youngest woman ever to win an Olympic figure skating gold medal. Henie held that title for seventy years until Tara Lipinski of the USA won Olympic gold in 1998. Lipinski was two months younger than Henie when she won gold in 1998 at the Olympic Winter Games that took place in Nagano, Japan. Sonja Henie won the ladies Olympic figure skating title three times. Her first Olympic gold was in 1928 followed by more wins in 1932 and in 1936. Before Sonja Henie appeared in the figure skating world, female ice skaters wore black figure skates. Henie introduced the idea that women and girls should wear white ice skating boots. Ice skating attire until Sonja Henie’s time was similar to street clothing. Sonja introduced the idea of short and beautiful figure skating skirts and dresses.
