Athletics at the Olympics

Last night I watched some of the men's short program figure skating from the Olympics.  I love watching the combination of athleticism and artistry, and the mere ability to skate and leap and jump and twirl and spin amazes me.  Some of the final spins were so fast, their heads disappeared!  I don't know if there's anything like figure skating during the summer Olympics.  Perhaps diving is the closest, where there are points for difficulty and artistry and the contestants are required to perform certain moves.
