Who did the first skating back flip?

Fist person to do the back flip was Mike Course in 1957 in the show Paris sur la glace in Paris, France Terry Kubicka introduced the backflip in the 1976 World Figure Skating Championships. The move was banned immediately after the competition, making Kubicka's the only legal performance of that move. One reason the ISU (governing body of figure skating) banned the backflip was that it did not believe it could be landed on one foot, as all other jumps have to be. Surya Bonaly and other skaters have landed backflips on one foot, but the move remains illegal in amateur competition. It is allowed in exhibition and professional skating.
