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 G#65533;rard Ch#65533;taigneau 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.
