Figure Skating

Figure Skating began in the later part of the 19th century

In Europe because of an American ballet master named

Jackson Haines.  

Figure Skating is a sport and activity in which individuals,

duos, and/or groups perform on skates on ice. The

performances include dancing and tricks.

 judges use to use a 6.0 scoring system, where judges

gave each skater two marks (one for technical, one for performance).  The Skaters marks are added up and

skaters are given an ordinal number from that judge. This system is still used today in lower competition levels. However higher competitions (Olympics) use

the IJS system (International Scoring System).
