Gala Exhibition

Figure Skating at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games

Certain figure skaters were favorites to win medals at the the 2014 Olympic Winter Games which took place in Sochi, Russia from February 6, 2014 through February 22, 2014.

Olympic Figure Skating Events

Five different figure skating events took place at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Phases of Olympic Figure Skating Events

At the Olympic Games, at least two different phases of a competition take place. This means that Olympic figure skaters do more than one performance before a champion is crowned. The winner of the first phase of an Olympic event may win an Olympic title, but there is a chance that someone else can "pull up" and become the Olympic Figure Skating Champion. In the final phase of Olympic figure skating competition, the skaters who place in the top four after the initial phase, compete last, so the last part of an Olympic figure skating event is the most exciting to watch!
