These brilliant young skaters, and many, many more, are spotlighted in this richly illustrated book for every fan of the world's most elegant sport.

Figure skating is a sport like no other. Combining grace, incredible athletic ability and true showmanship, every competition is exhilarating and highly entertaining. Anything can happen on the ice and often does. As the fans of figure skating know, beauty and danger add up to the greatest show on ice.

The team of Gerard Chataigneau and Steve Milton combine their love of the competition and many years of experience photographing and writing about the skaters to produce a wonderful tribute to the stars and their art. With biographies and statistics, Figure Skating Now offers a fan's eye view of the competitive world of international figure skating at its highest levels.

What youngster has not dreamed of flying gracefully across the ice in a glamorous costume, astonishing onlookers with a perfectly executed triple flip and a dizzying scratch spin, as the music rises and falls with each move? The extraordinary photographs in Figure Skating Now show brilliant young stars doing precisely that. This is an ideal book for dreamers, skaters and armchair fans alike.

A book for all fans of figureskating: richly illustrated short biographies of all the major skaters in figureskating today.
