Rescheduled ISU Skating Awards - took place July 11th, 2020

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

There was a little magic evident in awarding the first ever ISU Lifetime Achievement Award - one that was not voted upon but certainly well deserved 8-)

The show included interviews with all but one of the nominees and a musical "interlude" with Aloe Blacc and footage from Art on Ice featuring a number of skaters and some acts similar to those planned for the live show in Montreal.




In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, the winners were....

  • Best Coach - Eteri Tutberidze [the only nominee not available live]
  • Best Choreographer - Shae-Lynn Bourne
  • Best Costume - Madison Chock & Evan Bates (with Mathieu Caron) for their free dance costumes
  • Most entertaining program - Papadakis & Cizeron for their "Fame" RD
  • Most valuable skater - Yuzuru Hanyu Image

Oh, kind of deflating, I remember voting back then, but was perhaps a bit biased :) I didn't watch the program though shouldn't really nag.

It's nice to see Shae-Lynn's name there for Choreography. She's always been a favourite of mine.

As you will have seen, she was up again Marie-France and Lori, so it was bound to be a Canadian winner. Shae-Lynn appeared quite shocked and Lori didn't look too pleased....
