44 years ago Not so. Figure Skating first appeared in 1908 at the London Summer Games featuring 4 events (one being "special figures" that afterward was not contested separately from the singles event). Figure Skating next appeared at the 1924 Winter Olympics held in Chamonix, France and with the exception of the 1940 and 1944 Games that were suspended because of WW II, figure skating has been a permanent fixture at the Winter Olympics. So figure skating has been a Winter Olympics sport for 88 years - double your 44.
On the day of Natalia's first figure skating competition, she did great and got first place. Natalia's favorite sport of all time is figure skating, even though she wasn't good at it.
"Figure skating was first contested as an Olympic sport at the 1908 Summer Olympics, in London, United Kingdom. As this traditional winter sport could be conducted indoors, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved its inclusion in the Summer Olympics program." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_figure_skating

Math and science have many things to do with figure skating. You could use math to figure out how much time it would take to get from point A to point B. Science is also very important because it adds speed and momentum to figure skating. It also adds gravity. If there were no gravity, figure skating would be impossible because you would not be able to stay on the ground.
Figure skating originated in Poland.

Ice skating is more just skating for fun and figure skating is doing spins and jumps Ice skating is any type of skating and figure skating is dancing on ice Whoever put that is wrong! Ice Skating is a sport that just sums up every thing you do on ice... it is a category of all the skating activities on ice! True figure skating is like dancing and spinning (i should know i have won a figure skating Competition!) But it is just a category!
Figure skating is not a race, and does not have a fastest time. There is a highest skill, but not a fastest time. Skaters are scored by a panel of judges based on the overall presentation, their execution of moves, and the difficulty of those moves.
