1920 Summer Olympics
Six skaters from four nations competed. Despite receiving no first place votes from the judges in the women's singles, Magda Julin of Sweden captured the gold on the strength of three second-place ordinals. She was three months pregnant at the time.
Theresa Weld caused a minor controversy by performing jumps such as salchows and loops, the only woman in the event to do any jumps beyond modest hops. She was told that such jumps were not considered suitable for a lady's program and that some judges marked down as a result.
