Individual   men   ladies
Pairs mixed

At the 1924 Winter Olympics, three figure skating events were contested. The competitions were held from Tuesday, January 29 to Thursday, January 31, 1924.

The events held at this Games were not the first figure skating events contested at the Olympic Games, as the sport had also been on the programme at the 1908 and 1920 Summer Olympics. Gillis Grafström successfully defended his 1920 title.

In Chamonix, the figure skating competitions were held on a square rink rather than a rectangular one, as a last-minute change. Consequently some competitors had difficulty adjusting their free skating programs to fit the ice surface.[1]
