7/10

I missed the one about the oldest Oly winter sport. I was really surprised to find out it was FS!

Also missed # seconds for dance lift and an easy one...............the first Olys to have a team event. For reasons I checked Vancouver when I know it was 2014 Sochi................

7/10 - better than I thought I would do since I don't consider myself to be anything close to an expert but it was a fun quiz.

There should be a real expert quiz that not only asks us trivia questions about skating history, but also asks us to identify rockers, counters, choctaws, etc.; show us a gif of some steps and guess which level it received; asks us parts of the IJS (like how much an element is worth or identify which one is NOT a guideline for +4 GOE/PCS), etc.

8/10, messed up the combination lift (I was like, 6 seconds and then went shit, combo is lift + lift so 6 + 6 = 12) and the medal count - surprised Russia doesn't have more.

I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaate that the question about SLC was in there.

Missed the oldest winter Olympic sport and the combination lift (long lifts and combo lifts used to be 10 seconds back in the day, when the 6.0 was abolished...obviously someone hasn't put much attention to the ice dance rules lately, whoops, my bad)

I got this question wrong: Which jump takes off from a backwards outside edge?
I answered loop instead of lutz. Since they both take off from a back outside edge, loop seems more correct since there's no mention of a toepick in the question.
You should have reread the question. Which toe-pick assisted jump takes off from a backwards outside edge?

I got 8 out of 10, and I guessed right about the toe-pick assisted jump being a Lutz because I usually get confused about those jumps!

The two that I got wrong, and I'm sort of embarrassed about both, was the combination dance lift not exceeding 12 seconds. I guessed 6 seconds because I wasn't sure.

The other question was about Figure Skating being the oldest Winter Olympic Sport. I didn't think it was!

Other than that, I'm proud of myself. I guess watching Figure Skating all these years paid off! I think what I miss the most is when my mom and I watched it together. My mom passed away in 1987, and I really missed her when it came time for the 1988 Olympics. 💞💓

Very cool, I only got one question wrong. 9 out of 10 correct!!!

I got the ice dancing question wrong and that’s the discipline I watch the least so it makes sense to me. I guessed six seconds.

I hesitated on is ice-skating the oldest winter Olympic sport. Seems like a trick question so I guessed yes
