Figure Skating

overview

Spinning, jumping, gliding. Skating towards success.

The oldest sport on the Olympic Winter Games program, figure skating was first contested at the 1908 Summer Olympics, before transitioning to the Winter program from 1924 onwards. In 1976, ice dancing was added as an event alongside men’s, women’s and pairs. Canada has won an impressive 29 Olympic medals in figure skating.

Figure skating has featured on the Canada Winter Games program since the inaugural Games in 1967, and has remained ever since. Events for Special Olympics athletes were incorporated at the 2003 Games.

Featuring notable alumni such as Olympic medalists Brian Orser, Kaetlyn Osmond, and Rob McCall, and Special Olympic World Games medalists Meg Ohsada and Jack Fan, the Canada Games has a proven track record in helping Canada become a global figure skating powerhouse.
