(0) marks: 0

Figure skating is a very remarkable winter sport both as a winter sports and as an Olympic discipline. In the leisure section everyone can practice it mainly during the winter months. Those who practice roller-skating in summer or practice inline skating are physically prepared for figure skating. In comparison with ordinary ice skating, figure skating exercises jumps, figures and rhythmic running to the musical tunes. However, all this requires a lot of practice and training. As a beginner, you should avoid jumps. Besides, it is very important to warm up making some other kind of sports before going on ice moves. These can be either gymnastics or knee bends. The skates should fit exactly and be firmly seated on feet. Also, the grinding of the blades must be also controlled. With blunt blades falls and injuries are inevitable. In larger cities there are also ice sport halls where the mass sports can be practiced. In winter sport areas the artificial ice areas are often created and prepared for ice skating. In many places one can rent the skates. There is a food and music over there, too. You can find even medics and a “relaxation room” in a well-kept winter sports areas.

In the professional skating area includes a single audit of lords and ladies, and the couple run. Until 1989 the single run consisted of three parts: the first compulsory figures. Among them are the predetermined movements that are done with the increasing degree of a difficulty. Then this is followed by the short program that usually lasts for 2 minutes. It consists of jumps and compulsory spin together and by their own chosen music. And finally comes the exercises in accordance with the arbitrary program that last up to 4.5 minutes usually. Here the dancers express themselves freely without and constraints.
