Established at Special Olympics

Figure skating appeared in the distant past when the first ice skates were created. As a sport, figure skating began evolving with the appearance of metal skates that allowed athletes to control direction of their movement and perform complicated choreographic figures.

Figure skating strengthens and tones muscles, helps improve posture and train the vestibular system. Additionally, it enhances endurance, agility and strength, and improves flexibility.
