A new posse of figure skating superstars has emerged over the last decade, delighting fans around the world. These young athletes whose skill, power, grace and artistry were so thrillingly displayed at the 2010 Olympics, are celebrated here in glorious images and insightful text.

At the 1998 Nagano Games, Olympic figure skating judge Jean Senft blew the whistle on vote trading, paving the way for a new judging system that is now driving the sport in exciting directions. Senft describes how today’s skaters are exploring ever-more difficult and dramatic ways of scoring and provides an insider’s view of international figure skating at its highest level.

More than 140 stunning full-color photographs by renowned photographer Gérard Châtaigneau highlight the talents of the sport’s new stars, including Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Evan Lysacek, Joannie Rochette, Yu-Na Kim, Johnny Weir, Mao Asada, and many more.

Review:

For avid followers of the sport, Triumph on Ice, by veteran Canadian skating judge Jean Riley Senft, offers a rare type of content. First, there are short, clear explanations of the various components—technical elements, choreography, spins, step sequences, jumps—on which skaters are scored. Then the highlight: almost 100 pages of brilliant photographs by Toronto's Gerard Chataigneau, an ex-skater himself . . . Finally, we really see what top-ranked skaters achieve. —Guelph Mercury

(2010-11-20)

Black and white would hardly do for a book that showcases figure skating—not with the cover model, American Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, wearing a costume with a multi-colored snake embroidered on it. As any fan of the Winter Olympics knows, the garb itself is a spectator sport. But amid the clown makeup and peasant dress, the flowing locks and the spiky hairdos, photographer Gerard Chataigneau has captured leaps and twists that would make Ty Cobb envious. —Dennis Drabelle, Washington Post
