The first Russian Olympic champion in figure skating / Matvei M's story

Nikolai Panin won the gold medal in special figures in the 1908 Summer Olympics. Panin was Russia's first Olympic champion.
The so-called special figures event was an Olympic sport at the IV Summer Olympic Games in London. 1908 was the only year in which special figures was an Olympic event. As it was required then, Nikolai Panin sent the drawings of the figures he was going to trace on the ice to the judges before the games. The figures were so complex that many referees did not believe it was possible to trace them. But the seven-time world champion Swede Salchow believed it, but refused to do them. So Nikolai Panin became an Olympic champion.

Figure skating / Ksyusha P's story

Figure skating

        I like sport. My favourite sport is figure skating.
When I was four years old, my parents and I went to the skating rink. It was the first time I saw figure skaters. I loved the sport and I wanted to be a figure skater. 
       My parents and I went to the sport shop and bought new skates. I began to go to the figure skating club. First it was difficult. I fell again and again. One day Irina Slutskaya visited our club and she showed us some jumps and then she told her story about the Olympic Games. I understood it  is difficult to become a champion. You have to work hard and spend a lot of time on the skating rink. So I decided to skate for pleasure because my education is more important for me.
        Now I go to the skating rink three times a week. I like figure skating because I enjoy ice and speed. Thanks for sport I feel healthy and strong.

Thank you very much!!!
