The season 2020/21 was challenging to say the least and led to the cancellation of numerous events. Nonetheless in celebration of Figure Skating a special edition of the ISU Skating Awards will be held this year. The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented and the public will be treated to an amazing show, featuring some of the greatest athletes from around the world and some exclusive interviews at the ISU Skating Awards on July 10, 2021, which will be live streamed on the Skating ISU YouTube channel.
In this second edition of the ISU Skating Awards, viewers can look forward to some brand-new performances, created exclusively for the ISU Skating Awards. From Moscow to Los Angeles, Montreal to Tokyo, we’ll be checking in with skaters from around the world as they reflect on last season, and their journeys still to come.
