Pair Skating is distinguished from Ice Dance and Singles Skating by elements unique to Pair Skating such as overhead lifts, twist lifts, death spirals and throw jumps. The pairs also perform the elements of Singles Skating in unison.
Pair Skating is controlled by the International Skating Unin (ISU) and is an Olympic discipline along with Singles Skating and Ice Dance.
