Artistic skating, Lima 2019 discipline
Sport review

Artistic skating is a demonstration of choreographed routines set to music. Routines include jumps, spins, footwork and dance-like elements. The judges award points for speed, height in jumps, control, variety, originality and the sense of connection from one element to the next. Competitors use four-wheel skates, two in front at the toe and two at the back at the heel. There will be men’s and women’s free skating championships. There will be two parts: a short program (2:45+/-5) and a long one (men: 4:30 +/- 10”, and women 16:15 to 16:30) The Sport Complex 3 of the National Sports Village will be the venue for this sport.

History

It is said that skating originated in 17th century in Holland thanks to a man who wanted to continue skating in summer, when the channels had thawed. He attached wheels to his shoes and started skating on the ground. In the following century the first skates were patented by Belgian John Joseph Merlin in 1760. Although artistic skating has been considered at the Olympic Games since 1908, it was only recently introduced at the Pan American Games since its eighth edition in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1979.
