Put on a pair of skates – and a skating button.
The oldest pair of ice skates were found at the bottom of a lake in Europe, and are believed to be from 6000BC. Skating was a good way to get around in winter weather, but it wasn’t seen as a sport at first. Figure skates were created in the 1870s, and it became an Olympic sport in the 1908 games.
Even if you don’t see yourself as an athlete, skating is a good way to keep fit. You can burn over 350 calories with just one hour of casual ice skating!
