Lausanne / Switzerland

The ISU launched a new social media video campaign to promote the athletes that compete in ISU Events and Championships.  Three different mini-series are part of this new and exciting campaign, the first is “Wait...What!!!” where skaters were asked questions in front of a camera and some answers are surprising. A new “Wait...What!!!” video will be released every Friday on the ISU Skating YouTube Channel.

On February 24, 2015 the mini-series “What’s in my bag?” will launch.  Four Speed Skaters, five Short Track Speed Skaters and four Figure Skaters opened their bag to reveal what’s inside.

The ISU also spent “A moment with” fifteen athletes which is the title of the last mini-series.  “A moment with” can be anything from a portrait video to a funny sketch.

Every Tuesday a new “What’s in my bag” or “A moment with” video will be posted on the ISU Skating YouTube Channel

During the ISU World Sprint Speed Skating Championships, ISU World Allround Speed Skating Championships, ISU World Short Track Speed Skating Championships and ISU World Figure Skating Championships, a new video will be posted each competition day.
