Olympic figure skating is one of the best parts of the Winter Games. Fans around the world watch the ladies grab their skates and show moves that viewers could only dream of doing. According to the Washington Post on Sunday, the gold medal was given to the Russians after their team delivered the highest scores for the Olympic team competition. Now the viewers will have the chance to watch the individual competitions that will showcase individual skaters.
There will be some tough women on the ice so don’t think the gold medal will be randomly handed out. Gracie Gold and Ashley Wagner are looking to find their place in history. So is 15-year-old figure skater Julia Lipnitskaia from Russia who stunned the world in the team competition and helped Russia get the gold.
The ladies individual competitions won’t be like previous Olympics. In Sochi the women want the gold badly and they are going to be skating for the chance to prove it. With the turns, spins and fancy footwork, it will be an awesome part of Olympic history to watch.
Thankfully NBC has decided to carry all the women’s figure skating and it's going to be exciting. No matter who is the favored athlete in your mind, the chance to see everyone take the ice and perform can be as easy as turning on the television.
