Are you ready, figure skating fans?

Olympic Channel has something for you – a dedicated channel for the sport, called Olympic Channel On Ice, launching on 1 December.

On it, you'll be able to re-live every figure skating session from three Olympic Winter Games and one Winter Youth Olympic Games.

Remember Evan Lysacek and Yuna Kim winning gold at Vancouver 2010? Or perhaps you're a Hanyu Yuzuru fan who wants to watch his victories from Sochi 2014 or PyeongChang 2018 over again? You'll get the chance to do so.

The Ice Dance, Men's and Ladies' singles events from Vancouver and every figure skating routine (full sessions of all singles and pairs events) from Sochi, PyeongChang, and the Lausanne 2020 Winter Youth Olympics, will be featured.

And keep an eye out for some classic performances from other Games that may be shown, too.

The new dedicated figure skating channel is live on this link.

Vancouver 2010

A total of six ISU best score world records were set in Vancouver, which also saw the golden Olympic debut of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir in ice dance.

Japan won its first men's singles Olympic medal, courtesy of Takahashi Daisuke – who's now an ice dancer –, while Asada Mao thrilled everyone with her triple Axel prowess.

Only 1.31 points separated Lysacek from silver medallist Evgeni Plushenko in the men's event, and China's pairs gold-silver finish included their first Olympic title in the sport.

Sochi 2014

Enter Hanyu. He set a then-record for the men's short program en route to winning the first of his two Olympic golds, becoming the first man to score over 100 points in the short.

Sochi also saw the introduction to the Olympic Games of a figure skating team event, which was won by hosts Russia, giving Plushenko – who now coaches some of the brightest Russian ladies – his second Olympic gold and final Olympic medal.

PyeongChang 2018

While Hanyu was busy becoming the first man since Dick Button to win consecutive Olympic golds, training mate Javier Fernández finally converted his success at European and World Championships level into an Olympic medal with bronze.

The contest between starlets Alina Zagitova and Evgenia Medvedeva, representing the Olympic Athletes from Russia, was fierce, with just 1.31 points between the two Eteri Tutberidze trainees.

Aljona Savchenko finally reached the top step of an Olympic podium in pairs, while Virtue and Moir engaged in a titanic duel with Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron in ice dance.

Classic routines

There will also be other figure skating content on the new channel, including classic Olympic routines from Tara Lipinski, Brian Boitano, Kristi Yamaguchi, Pluschenko, Katarina Witt, and Alexei Yagudin.

Look out, too, for shows such as "Is It Possible?", in which we asked Uno Shoma for his opinion on jumping a quintuple jump.

Be sure to re-live all the action when the new channel launches.
