Figure Skating

Start with grace, form and true beauty. Add skill, challenge and pure athleticism. Combine all that with the tension and pressure of international competition. That’s what modern figure skating is all about. 

One of the trademarks of ABC’s Wide World of Sports has been its coverage of figure skating. We have covered 44 consecutive U.S. Figure Skating Championships from 1964-2008, not to mention World Figure Skating Championships and the crown jewel of the sport, Olympic Competition: 1964 Innsbruck; 1968 Grenoble; 1976 Innsbruck; 1980 Lake Placid; 1984 Sarajevo; and 1988 Calgary.
