Figure Skating Team Event

This event calls for all the meticulous technique and sensual grace of one skater and multiplies it by six. Each team has one male skater, one female skater, one skating pair and one ice dance couple, according to the Winter Olympics website, which says judges hand points to each skater or couple.

The event made its debut last year at the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck, Austria. The USA team took the Gold in the in Tokyo in the 2009 International Skating Union World Team Trophy, on which the team figure skating event is based, according to Figure Skaters Online.
