Abstract:

This all-inclusive look at figure skating covers its history, past and present champions, skating techniques, fitness advice, tips on creating routines, and the judging system. For little girls and boys with a dream and a new pair of skates, for millions who can't be pried away from the television when Brian Boitano performs, for anyone who wonders just how it's done The United States Figure Skating Association presents the first full-color, official guide to figure skating. The second most popular sport in America after pro football. Prepared with the full cooperation of the sport's national governing body--the USFSA--along with its experts, coaches, and archives. The Official Book of Figure Skating is the one publication every skating fan must have. This authoritative volume celebrates all aspects of figure skating-- the speed and power, the grace and glamour, how it's done as well as who does it. Everyone from casual fan to beginner to budding champion can appreciate its range and beauty. Sections on history, personalities, and costumes tell the fascinating story of how skating, originating with the simple need to cross frozen water, has been transformed into a unique blend of sport, art, and entertainment. The book also reveals the experts' secrets behind choreography and conditioning.
