iron lotus[edit]

is this real? has someone ever been beheaded in a figure skating —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.18.52.179 (talk) 16:23, 12 June 2007

If you talking about the move in Blades of Glory - No. — Gary van der Merwe (Talk) 08:09, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
From the Blades of Glory page: The individual parts of the iron lotus are real, but put together they are physically impossible to perform. It's a comedy, not a documentary. :) Kolindigo 14:46, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
So far nobody has been beheaded ever in figure skating. There is no official element called "Iron Lotus" in the ISU rules. The element in the movie is absolutely fiction. Uwe Langer 16:25, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Supposed "controversy" about status as a sport[edit]

Figure skating has a long history of competition in the Olympic Games. If you think that is not sufficient recognition that it is indeed widely considered to be a sport, please discuss this issue here instead of engaging in edit wars in the article itself. What references can you provide that prove it is not a sport, or that there is a true controversy about referring to it as a sport? Dr.frog (talk) 15:00, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Figure skate blades[edit]

HI

absence of coverage of the many judging controversies. same problem in the olympics page[edit]

there is no coverage of the famous controversies in figure skating such as vote rigging by the french judges, or tonya harding attacking her opponents. this seems a significant oversight! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.240.155.29 (talk) 11:31, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
