ISU Commitment to Adult Figure Skating
At that first ISU Adult Figure Skating Competition in 2005 – to the delight of all participants – ISU President Ottavio Cinquanta attended every event and gave out all of the medals. It was a clear indication that the ISU was seriously committed to supporting adult skating.
The ISU made its computer system available so that the competition could be judged under the new IJS system – making this the first adult competition to use the new system. And, because this is an event under the auspices of the ISU, all the judges are Olympic or World level judges selected by the ISU.
President Cinquanta continues to support this event and recognizes the increasing popularity of adult figure skating and the ISU Adult Figure Skating Competition. ISU Council Member Phyllis Howard is also a big supporter of adult figure skating and has been annually in person at every competition held in Oberstdorf.
