Figure skating has better skating skill than hockey. However, hockey is a team sport and game, and figure skating is an "art" and to learn it, you pretty much have to go through the rigors you'd do in learning any other art. It's actually very similar to lots of martial arts, the skill sets needed. Hockey, though, is a fun game, like soccer, and different skills are needed for that game, like stick handling, ability to work on a team, etc, that figure skating wouldn't require. One thing, though, that people don't realize, in a race, equivalent level figure skater and hockey player, the figure skater will usually win against the hockey player, the better technique from figure skating would make a better hockey player for sure, just both sides usually never want to try each other's sport.
it depends if you mean all athletes or just one sport if its one sport its judged by different things for each sport like style in skating, or if you won the last game of the tourney in hockey you would get gold. If you mean by country than yes if you had the most medals you would win the games.
There are 4 figure skating events: Men's Singles, Woman's Singles, Pairs, and Ice Dancing. With 3 medals( Gold, Silver, Bronze) for each of those events there are 12.
Figure skating can be both a team sport and an individual one, but is only an indirect competition. In individual, each skater does their own performance and is graded, then compared with all others in the competition. In pairs or group, the skates in each team will conduct a performance, receiving the grade as a team and then has this compared to other teams in the competition.
The American born figure skater Johnny Weir won his bronze medal at the World Figure Skating Championships in 2008. He has also won a bronze medal on two other separate occasions. Both of these medal winnings were at the Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final which is the culmination of the I.S.U Figure Skating Grand Prix series held each year.

Speed skating is based on skating for speed, not style. Figure skating is the opposite, as it skates for style and not always speed. Speed skating requires: -Lower cut boot, almost like a shoe -Longer blades than artistic skaters -the objective is to go fast, not to impress the judges Figure skating: -based on competing in a number of levels and elements -consists of jumps, spins and footwork -artistry and difficulty are considered when judging -higher cut boot -regular length blade, but with a toe pick and edges
Each event has a cap on the number of athletes a country can send..It seems that all countries have an equal chance to send the same number of athletes depending on how the athletes preform in other competitions, especially in the World Championships. For example, an Explanation of Figure Skating Allotment and Qualifications and Alpine Skiing Can be found at the related link below.
My question is,"If you took all professional athletes in every sport and combined their salaries, not bonuses, just salaries, and averaged them out for each athlete what would it be?
