The first trophies in real mode

Back to normal for the International Skating Union (ISU). To the world before. The ISU has announced that the third edition of its annual ISU Skating Awards will be held on 5 February 2023 in real time. After two successive virtual editions in 2020 and 2021, due to the health crisis, the next version will be animated and filmed for the first time in front of a live audience. The event will be organised by the ISU in collaboration with the Art on Ice skating troupe. The ISU Skating Awards will be integrated into a show, featuring performances by bands, professional dancers and figure skaters, exclusive interviews, and the announcement of the winners of the trophies in each category. They will reward the best skaters of the 2022 calendar year, marked by the Beijing Winter Games, the World Championships in Montpellier, and the Grand Prix Finals. The event will be broadcast live on the ISU YouTube channel.
