Figure skating is a sport where if you want to look good skating you have to be graceful. I am a figureskater and help kids skate and if you don't look graceful then you look diff and don't have good balance then you will not look good skating, that is why you must practice because if you haven't been on the ice in a long time and you go out there and start skating all over you will look messy.
While people have been ice skating for centuries, figure skating in its current form originated in the mid-19th century by Englishman Robert Jones, the first known account of figure skating. Competitions were then held in the "English style" of skating, which was stiff and formal and bears little resemblance to modern figure skating. American skater Jackson Haines considered the "father of modern figure skating", introduced a new style of skating in the mid-1860s. This style, which incorporated free and expressive techniques, became known as the "international style." Although popular in Europe, Haines' style of skating was not widely adopted in the United States until long after his death.
Common injuries are cut feet this happens when you have been skating for a long time and you still are using your old pair of skates then you get new skates that you aren't use to.
It depends on how long your Figure Skates are to begin with. The blade is slightly longer than the skate itself, though.
4 minutes and 50 seconds
You can train for figure skating at your town/city's arena. Training for figure Skating can vary. You need to learn the basics of the sport, the jumps and spins, and the stuff inbetween also known as foot work. Every skater is different. It may take longer for someone to land a simple axel jump than for another.

It depends on what type of figure skating you are referring to. If it is a beginner skater, athletic pants (no jeans) with a long sleeve shirt, jacket and gloves. If it is a advanced skater on a freestyle session, athletic pants or a skating dress with tights and gloves.
Figure skating has been part of the olympic games since 1908, where it was first part of the summer Olympics. In 1924, it was first introduced to the winter Olympics. Your question does not specify which Olympics, but it was in the summer Olympics 102 years ago. It has been in the winter Olympics for 86 years, and been in all 21 winter Olympic games since then.
Figure skating has been around for a LONG time. The exact time and process by which humans first learned to ice skate is not known, though archaeologists believe the activity was widespread. The convenience and efficiency of ice skating to cross large, icy areas is shown in archaeological evidence by the finding of primitive animal bone ice skates in places such as Russia, Scandinavia, Great Britain, Germany, and Switzerland.Hope that helped! :)
