Figure skating was contested in the Olympic Games since the 1908 Summer Olympics. It is the oldest sport on the Olympic Winter program.

The number of entries for the figure skating events at the Olympic Games is limited by a quota set by the International Olympic Committee. There are 30 participants in each singles events (ladies and men), 24 couples in ice dance and 20 in pairs.

Which skaters from each country attend the Olympic Games is at the national governing body's discretion. Some countries rely on the results of their national championships while others have more varied criteria based on international success at competitions such as the European Figure Skating Championships and the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships. Selections vary by country.
