The Slovak Figure Skating Championships are the figure skating national championships held annually to crown the national champions of Slovakia. Medals may be awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing on the senior, junior, and novice levels. Prior to 1994, during the existence of Czechoslovakia, the championships were held at the sub-national level.
In 2007 and 2008, the Slovak Championships were held concurrently with the Czech Championships. Since 2009, the event is held with the Czech Republic and Poland, forming the Three Nationals Championships. Skaters from the three countries compete together and the results are split at the end of the competition to form national podiums.
Famous quotes containing the words figure and/or skating:
“And they lie like wedges,
Thick end to thin end and thin end to thick end,
And are a figure of the way the strong
Of mind and strong of arm should fit together,
One thick where one is thin and vice versa.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“In skating over thin ice, our safety is in our speed.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
