Figure Skating Photos
epa’s figure skating photos catch the moment of the symbiosis of technique and emotion. Various elements and moves performed by figure skaters receive a score by a panel of judges. The scores are based on how well the skaters execute the elements which are mainly jumps, spins and lifts as well as moves such as step sequences, spirals, edge moves and turns. But it is not only the technical elements that make figure skating a pleasure to watch, but also the elegance, the beauty and the gracefulness of the skaters, expressing strong emotions in the perfect interplay of music and performance. epa provides worldwide coverage of the singles, the pair skating and the ice dancing disciplines during the Olympic Winter Games, European and World Championships and the ISU World Cup events.
