ISU Synchronized Skating Championships

The first ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships took place in 2000 in Minneapolis (USA) and is now an annual event. It attracts the most elite senior-level Synchronized Skating teams from around the world.

A Synchronized Skating team, originally known as Precision Team Skating, is composed of 16 Skaters and demands precise formations and for the team to move in one unit.

Although initially dominated by just a handful of teams and countries (Sweden, Finland, Canada, USA) the sport has grown and become more competitive and appealing to a wider range of countries.

The ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships are held since 2013 and are now part of the ISU Synchronized Skating Championships.

In 2017 the ISU Council appointed an advisory Working Group to study conditions for including Synchronized Skating in the program of the Olympic Winter Games.

The mandate of the Working Group is to investigate, strategize and gather the information required for Synchronized Skating to be accepted as an Olympic discipline.
