The Skater is an oil painting on canvas completed by the American artist Gilbert Stuart in 1782, while he was living in London. Stuart's first full-length portrait, it depicts a young Scotsman named William Grant, whom the artist painted from memory after the two went skating together on the Serpentine in Hyde Park. The Skater was widely praised after being displayed at the Royal Academy of Arts, and the artist began to receive numerous prominent commissions. Stuart later said that he had been "suddenly lifted into fame by [this] single picture", which is now held by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.Painting: Gilbert Stuart

In this form of wrestling, fighters attempt to throw their opponents to the ground by lifting them up and over, usually outside a given area.
