What do ice skaters wear to keep warm?
A snug-fitting sweater, sweatshirt, or windbreaker can help keep you from getting cold while you’re on the ice. As you warm up, you can remove the layers so you don’t get too hot. Some coaches allow their skaters to practice with sweatpants or windbreaker pants over their tights as well.
What do ice skaters wear on their legs?
Because skaters can trip over their own laces. And having tights cover the laces removes that potential snafu, which would cost a competitor a medal. Some skaters also wear tights over skates for the same reason women might wear nude-colored high heels: It creates the illusion of longer legs.
