MARKETING, PROMOTION & DIGITALIZATION

2

Dear Skating Friends, New records, new elements, new passing maneuvers. The Skaters raised the bar again in the past season. We can look back with great pleasure on the many ISU Events full of exciting performances and memorable experiences. We can also memorize the first edition of the ISU Conferences with ISU Members and Office Holders. The ISU Council is grateful for the high attendance and fruitful exchange of thoughts and ideas. Regarding Development, we discussed the new policy, important themes and examples of projects in interactive sessions. The Development Commission also had one-on-one meetings with present Members to discuss their specific needs. Regarding marketing, promotion & digitalization, Infront and IMG outlined developments in the (sports) market and opportunities for the ISU. The attendees also discussed several topics, such as ISU media & PR initiatives, possible rule changes, event promotion and presentation. Elaborating on this, it is clear that today’s sports fans have many interests competing for their attention. They are also never without a mobile device. We have to keep this in mind. Our shared mission is that we continue to captivate the current generation and future generations with Ice Skating. Key questions for all of us are: how can we increase the fan base and how can we increase the experience and engagement for fans in the stadium and through media ? The ISU and its Members must work hard on this together. It is vital to review our ‘products’ and focus on promotion. I would like to mention two examples that we are working on at the moment. In line with the discussions at the ISU Conferences, we are implementing a new fan-centric digital strategy. The key is to increase content for fans on continuously updated ISU platforms. The strategy should also support Members and OC’s and showcase the Athletes and their stories. The new ISU website will be launched in time for the Olympic season. www.isu.org will be split into two sections: a fan page and inside ISU. The aim is to create a real skating experience, make it more appealing to fans and have a better tool for the ISU Skating Family. Once launched the website will not be finished, but constantly evolving. An ISU App which stimulates fan engagement lies ahead as well. Furthermore, we must anticipate the needs of Partners. Media and sponsors are extremely important for the promotion of our sport. We need to offer valuable opportunities for interactions with their target groups. At the 2016 ISU Congress, I promised that I would go the extra mile - together with the ISU Council and staff - to find new title sponsors that fit our mission. I am pleased to announce that the ISU has a new sponsorship deal. Audi is the new title sponsor for the Audi ISU World Cup Short Track Speed Skating series as of season 2017/18. Just as Skaters are continuously aiming for better performances, and use innovative methods to reach their goals, so does the ISU as an organization. We need to constantly move forward together. It is as they say: no change, no progress.

Jan Dijkema ISU President

The ISU Council met on March 25 - 27 in Helsinki (FIN) on the occasion of the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2017. The Council granted provisional ISU Membership to the Cambodia Ice Skating Federation (CISF) bringing the total number of ISU Members to 92. The Council also approved the calendar for the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series 2017/18 and 2018/19 and selected 10 International Figure Skating Competitions for the ISU Figure Skating Challenger Series for the season 2017/18. The ISU Junior World Cup Speed Skating Series 2017/18 has also been approved. The annual Judges Draw for the 2017/18 Figure Skating Championships will be held on October 12, 2017 in Lausanne (SUI). Based on experience gained during the season 2016/17 and on feedback from the organizing ISU Members of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating events as well as TV rights holders for the series, the Council decided to change the provision of the starting order/draw related to the six individual events, restricted to the Short Program/Dance only (refer to Article 17.1.q of the ISU Constitution). The Council mandated a Working Group to work on an ISU Sustainability/Good Governance survey and evaluation and to make specific proposals in order to improve the ISU’s governance record. Finally the ISU Council reviewed the “Ultimate Skating” initiative (ISU Communication 2053). It agreed that before pursuing this project, its purpose and possible impact on Synchronized Skating must be better evaluated, consequently the Ultimate Skating project is on hold. In regard to Synchronized Skating, the Council mandated the Technical Committee to conduct tests at four International Competitions with teams composed of less than 16 skaters. The Council agreed to meet on June 2 - 4, 2017 in Amsterdam (NED) and on October 15 - 17, 2017 in Lausanne (SUI). For more information on the decisions of the Council see ISU Communication 2085.

The SSTC held its meeting in conjunction with the ISU World Single Distances Speed Skating Championships in Gangneung (KOR). The main goal of the meeting was to finalize the schedule and program for the 2017/18 Olympic season, including the six World Cups (four of which are Olympic Qualifying events) and the four Junior World Cup Speed Skating events. On March 25 the SSTC launched within the ISU Online Entry Speed Skating System, the ISU Officials section which will be in a test mode for the coming months.

Short Track The Short Track Speed Skating Technical Committee (STSSTC) is pleased with the preOlympic season. A record number of competitors participated in the ISU World Junior Championship in both genders. 50% of the distance world records have been broken and Singapore, Norway, Germany and Hungary all hosted very successful regional seminars.

Nao Kodaira dominated the Ladies’ 500 m from the start of the season until the very end. Being absent in Astana, the Japanese sprinter won all eight World Cup 500 m races she skated to lead a Japanese podium sweep in the 500 m World Cup. Maki Tsuji took home silver and Erina Kamiya grabbed bronze.

1000 m Ladies

Defending World Cup Champion Brittany Bowe (USA) suffered a concussion in the run-up to the season and missed both the start and the end of the season. Her compatriot Heather Bergsma was left without major opposition and she was unbeaten in all her six World Cup 1000 m races this season. Miho Takagi (JPN) came second in the 1000 m World Cup and Marrit Leenstra third.

1500 m Ladies

Although not as dominant as in the 1000 m, Bergsma also sealed the 1500 m World Cup. She won three of her five races including at the World Cup Final. Ireen Wüst also won two 1500 m races, but she skipped Astana (KAZ) and the Final, only to end up fourth in the 1500 m classification. Marrit Leenstra (NED), who collected three silver medals and one bronze medal, finished second in the final classification. Japan’s Miho Takagi took advantage of Bergsma’s absence in Astana, to end up third in the classification.

3000 / 5000 m Ladies

Martina Sáblíková added an eleventh consecutive overall long distance World Cup win to her impressive tally. The Czech champion won four 3000 m races and the 5000 m race in Heerenveen. Ireen Wüst was the only one to beat Sáblíková in the 3000 m this season, when she took gold in Berlin. Wüst was no contender for the final classification however. Russian Anna Yurakova finished second in the ranking, and Antoinette de Jong (NED) third.

Mass start Ladies

Bo-Reum Kim won this season’s Mass Start World Cup, with two race wins, two bronze medals and a silver medal in the Final. Last season’s overall winner Irene Schouten (NED) took gold in Stavanger, but she had missed the first two World Cup legs and finished fourth in the classification. Francesca Lollobrigida (ITA) saw consistency rewarded, finishing second after one silver medal and three bronzes. Ivanie Blondin (CAN) won two races, but she ended up in third place, 20 points behind Lollobrigida.

Team Pursuit & Team Sprint Ladies

Japan retained the Team Pursuit World Cup with three consecutive race wins in Astana, Heerenveen and Stavanger. The Netherlands came second once more and Russia ended up third. The podium in the team sprint was exactly the same.

500 m Men

Dai Dai Ntab was this season’s sprinting revelation and he won the 500 m World Cup in spectacular fashion. At the World Cup Final the Dutchman managed to win twice to take over Russia’s Ruslan Murashov in extremis. Murashov had to settle for overall silver and Ronald Mulder (NED) took the bronze.

1000 m Men

Kjeld Nuis retained his 1000 m title undisputed. He won five races and was absent in Astana. Canada’s Vincent De Haitre won only one race, but he ended up second thanks to a consistent season and Dutchman Kai Verbij carried home the bronze medal.

1500 m Men

After his 1000 m victory Nuis also won the 1500 m World Cup. He overtook Russia’s Denis Yuskov, when he won the Final with Yuskov finishing fourth in the final race. Patrick Roest took the bronze medal after finishing second in Stavanger.

5000 / 10,000 m Men

Jorrit Bergsma carried home the long distance World Cup. He won the 10,000 m in Heerenveen and the 5000 m at the Final, after two silver medals behind Sven Kramer following the Asian legs of the circuit, but Kramer decided to skip the rest of the World Cup season. Ted-Jan Bloemen (CAN) finished second in the World Cup and Peter Michael, who won the 5000 m in Astana, claimed bronze.

Mass start Men

Seung-Hoon Lee won the Men’s Mass Start World Cup. The Korean won the first race in Harbin and the Final in Stavanger, outsprinting Jorrit Bergsma and Bart Swings (BEL) on the final straight. Andrea Giovannini (ITA) took gold in Astana and collected enough points for the silver medal, with Bergsma finishing third in the ranking.

Team Pursuit and Team Sprint Men

Netherlands came out on top after having won the Men’s first two legs and the Final Team Pursuit. Norway finished second with one victory in Heerenveen and bronze medal winners Japan also won one race in Astana. Canada beat defending champions Netherlands in the Team Sprint World Cup. The Canadian Sprinters won the first leg and retained their top rank with two silvers medals in the remaining races. The Netherlands took overall silver after winning the Final and Germany finished in third place.

PAST MASTER

VIKTOR PETRENKO (UKR): BORN 1969 Olympic Winter Games Men Gold Medal 1992 Men Silver Medal 1988 ISU World Figure Skating Championships Men Gold 1992 Men Silver 1991, 1990 Men Bronze 1988 ISU European Figure Skating Championships Men Gold 1994, 1991, 1990 Men Silver 1992 Men Bronze 1988, 1987 ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships Men Gold 1984 Viktor Petrenko started his competitive career at the age of 10 and in 1984 won the World Junior Figure Skating title at the age of 14. During his career, Petrenko represented the Soviet Union, the Unified Team and the Ukraine and in 1992 he was the first Olympic flag bearer for Ukraine. He won the European title back-to-back in 1990 and 1991 and went on to earn a gold medal at the 1992 Olympic Winter Games in Albertville (FRA). A month after the Olympic Winter Games he won the World Figure Skating title in Oakland (USA). Although Petrenko clinched the European title in 1994, he finished fourth at the Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games and retired shortly after. Following his retirement from competitive skating, he went on to do shows and is now a coach based in the USA. Petrenko’s trademark was his humorous routines that were greatly enjoyed by the spectators. He also convinced his coach Galina Zmievskaya to work with Oksana Baiul (UKR) who went on to win the Olympic title in 1994 and the World title in 1993.
