In the early 1960s, men’s and women’s singles were contested in the second category of compulsory figures and free skating, and pairs were contested in the first category of free skating.

From the 1963-64 season, the pair adopted the Connected Program, the predecessor of the short program, and it was decided to compete in the second event, but the men’s singles and women’s singles are the second event of compulsory figure skating and free skating. It remained.

In the wake of the controversy over the women’s singles at the 1972 Sapporo Olympics , short programs have been introduced for men’s and women’s singles since the 1972-1973 season with the aim of reducing the weight of compulsory figures. Compulsory figures were completely abolished at the end of the 1989-1990 season.

The short program was called the Original Program in the 1989-1992 season and the Technical Program in the 1993-1994 season .
