The Physics of Ice Skating. The process of pulling in the arms and free leg close to the body increases the speed of the spin. All spins start with a process that uses a torque maneuver hook to generate angular momentum and then pulling the arms and free leg closer to the body reduces the moment of inertia. The rotation of spin increases to conserve angular momentum. A skater can increase rotational speed in a spin by pulling in the hands tightly to body. Rotation can be slowed or stopped by extending the hands and free leg out to check the rotational force of the spin allowing the core body to achieve stability for a controlled exit. The skater accelerates to achieve speed linear momentum then a downward pressure is applied to an edge from the ball of the foot, or the toe of a skate inserted into the ice to achieve a pole vaulting motion in coordination with the skating edge. Height and speed determine the elapsed time from the take-off to the landing. Torque or moment of force is the rotation an object about an axis. To land, the skater extends opens up their arms and free leg in the same manner as exiting a spin on the ice.

While the solo sports are amazing feats of achievement, the team categories can be particularly brilliant, with each country represented by a group of people working together as one tight unit.

However the dismissal, together with an ISU statement, failed to convince the outraged Chinese sports fans, who said the decision was confusing. The Chinese team decided to appeal to the ISU Technical Committee late Tuesday after having initially crossed the line in the silver medal position. Li Yan, chief coach of the Chinese short track speed skating team, said they were unable to hand in the appeal material right after the race as the referees were in a meeting, CCTV reported.
During China’s final relay exchange, the Chinese skater drastically changed lane from the outside to the inside, impeding the active Korean skater, read a Wednesday statement from the ISU. The ISU also released photographic evidence in the statement, pointing out the infractions for China and Canada that led to its decision.
China pointed out that South Korea also crashed during the race, yet were not penalized. Referees should treat every team equally and the ISU statement fails to clarify this point, Li said.

Image credit: Getty Images. Fourcade has been suffering from Gastroenteritis and although he tried to start he was unable to do and had to take the DNS. That opened up the possibility for year-old Thingnes Boe to move up into the lead of the overall standings in the World Cup with his rival out of the picture but with the gap to Fourcade at 54 points going into the event he had to finish in the top two. He went into the lead after his first shooting run but he let himself down in the second as he missed twice.
He skied hard to try and get back to the leaders Anton Shipulin and Andrejs Rastorgujevs but he was unable to make up the time and had to settle for fourth. That is enough to give him the lead in the sprint standings and he does close the gap on Fourcade in the overall rankings to 11 points but he will feel this was a huge opportunity missed. Fourcade is expected to return to action on Sunday in the mass start whilst there is also the relay on Saturday which he could participate in if his condition allows.

The U. Uniforms that fail to serve their various purposes—whether to increase speed or keep an athlete covered up—are, sadly, a bit of a recurring theme in athletic competitions. Here are some of the worst uniform fails in recent sports history. Now, FINA rules stipulate that swimsuit fabric has to be water-permeable. The ban was a loss for speed but a win for style—the full-body suits made swimmers look like weird steel torpedoes. Thanks to some fancy but leaky raincoats, the American golf team got drenched at the Ryder Cup in Wales.
Lisa Pavin, wife of team captain Corey Pavin, was given an unlimited budget to design this ill-fated raingear, and she insisted on embroidering names on the backs of the jackets in addition to stripes on the pants and sleeves. But embroidering meant poking thousands of tiny holes in the fabric, making them leak like colanders. Apparently, over the course of 20 meetings, Sun Mountain, the golf and outerwear company that collaborated on the designs, warned Pavin about possible leakage, but she was set on embroidery.
