The first depiction of ice skating in a work of art was made in the 15th century by the Dutch artist Johannes Brugman. Brugman's painting shows a saint falling on the ice. We see that ice skating began in those countries richly endowed with lakes. Human beings made their first skates by tying cattle bones to their shoes. Ice skates have transformed since they were first made thousands of years ago. Today, modern ice skates equipped with 3 mm - 4 mm wide stainless steel blades allow you to skate effortlessly on the ice. Thanks to six free blade sharpenings, ice skaters now find it easier to stop, jump and spin. Ice skating can be done at any age as a hobby. However, figure skating is an Olympic sport in which individuals, pairs, or groups perform spins, jumps, footwork and other intricate and challenging moves on ice skates. During competitions, athletes wear costumes appropriate for the concept of the dance or show to be performed.
