Ice skating, in one form another, has been with us almost as long as ice itself.
But true skating, involving footwear that bites into the ice rather than just gliding across the top of it, probably emerged in Holland in the 13th century.
As with so many sports, skating was formalised and codified by the British while the rest of the world just got on with being very good at it.
These days, the various ice skating sports – figure, speed and hockey – are all hugely popular Olympic events, with moments such as Torvill and Dean's magical ice dance routine to Ravel's Bolero at Sarajevo in 1984 earning a place in Games' history.
