Figure Skating depends on the athlete’s ability to coordinate their body’s movements into a graceful piece of art and majesty. Athletes go for the gold by performing a combination of spirals, jumps, spins and rotations in the air all the while maintaining balance and control. Athletes involved in figure skating show similar physical and psychological attributes as those in gymnastics.
