Pair Skater
Pair skating
Pair skating
is a figure skating discipline. International Skating Union (ISU) regulations describe pair teams as consisting of "one lady and one man." The sport is distinguished from ice dancing and single skating by elements unique to pair skating, including overhead lifts, twist lifts, death spirals, and throw jumps. Pair teams also perform the elements of single skating in unison. The discipline requires similar technique and timing on all elements of the performance in order to create an impression of "two skating as one". Serious skating accidents are most common in pairs. In February 1908, pair skating made its first appearance at the World Championships. Its Olympic debut took place in October 1908. Pair skating has evolved significantly since its early years. Some elements common in the modern-day sport were not introduced until decades later
