About the Sport
Ice skating is structured into two divisions; Speed Skating and Figure Skating. Speed Skating consists of the Olympic disciplines of Long Track and Short Track, whilst Figure Skating covers the disciplines of Singles/Pairs, Dance and Synchronised, of which only Synchronised is not an Olympic discipline.
There are approximately 120,000 people who skate regularly in the UK, and 5,000 individuals and 75 clubs are members of British Ice Skating. With offices to be based in Sheffield, British Ice Skating provides educational services, competitive opportunities and development programmes for all levels. This includes administering, accrediting and promoting Skate UK, a formal learn-to-skate programme, which is recognised by ice rinks and used by other sport NGBs as a standard for competitive participation.
Ice Skating has a proud history of medal success at the Olympic Games, especially during the 1970s and 1980s, through which stars Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean, Robin Cousins and John Currie became household names. Recently Short Track Speed Skaters Nicky Gooch and Elise Christie have also captured the public imagination with their speed and guile.
