Minsk, Belarus


The ISU's campaign to promote clean sport continued in Minsk (BLR) with the Pure As Ice campaign which was at the ISU European Figure Skating Championships in collaboration with tthe NADA in Belarus. The event  was aimed at Figure Skating athletes and had over 63 participants.

A number of top athletes got involved including three times World Champion and Olympic medalist Gabriella Papdakis (FRA) and two times World Champion and Olympic medalist Javier Fernandez  (ESP) who came by and challenged themselves with the Play True Quiz and left with Pure As Ice goodies.

Although skaters were the main participants in Minsk, the ISU was pleased to welcome coaches, team leaders and medical staff too.
