This project celebrates figure skaters who have represented the United States at International Skating Union events, such as the World Championships or Winter Olympics, as members of Team USA. Both past and present figure skaters, male and female, are covered by the scope of the project. The fields of figure skating in the United States include men's, ladies', pairs, ice dancing, and synchronized.
