International Skating Union

In March 2018, leaders from the International Skating Union (ISU) took the time during the ISU World Figure Skating Championships to sign an agreement recognizing Special Olympics and the continued work of our athletes in skating sports.

Special Olympics hopes to work with national member federations of the International Skating Union in conjunction with our local programs to enhance the development of the sports of figure skating and speed skating. Special Olympics figure skating and speed skating competitions are based on ISU rules. This endorsement from the ISU comes in advance of the 2021 Special Olympics World Winter Games.
