The festive season is approaching and it is the time of year to reflect on what has passed and look toward 2019
We experienced many joyous ice skating moments at the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang 2018 and at ISU Events this year. We witnessed athletes live their dream and touch many people around the world with their amazing performances and stories.
"One of these athletes was Denis Ten from Kazakhstan. The skating community is very saddened by the passing of this brilliant Skater who was admired, liked and respected by all. He is in our thoughts and remembered with affection." said Jan Dijkema, ISU President.

In the new year, there will be many more great moments to experience. The Skaters are always performing to the best of their ability and the fans are there to encourage them.
Thank you to all fans for their passion and love of ice skating sports. The ISU invites all fans to join us in the New Year on the continuous journey and excitment that Figure Skating, Synchronized Skating, Speed Skating and Short Track Speed Skating have to offer.
