Best Answer

Rectangular with rounded corners. Olympic ice is 200 x 100 while a hockey rink is 200 x 85. Most figure skaters make do practicing and competing on regulation size hockey rinks as it is more cost efficient to have a rink that can cater to both hockey and figure skaters. When a figure skater trains for the Olympics they usually go to a training center that is designed specifically for that purpose.
