Figure Skating depends on the athlete’s ability to coordinate their body’s movements into a graceful display of art and technique. Athletes go for the gold Ulu 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 to those in gymnastics.
Competition categories in Figure Skating during 2018 Arctic Winter Games include: Ladies 1 (born 2005 or later), Ladies 2, Ladies 3 & Ladies 4 (all born between 2000-2007). A team consists of up to eight athletes and 2 coaches from each participating contingent.
In 2018 the Figure Skating events will be held at Fort Smith Centennial Arena in Fort Smith.
