New Figure Skating Judging System Approved by ISU

Some significang changes in international ice skating competitions were approved at the International Skating Union Congress June 7-11, 2004 in Scheveningen,Netherlands.

Figure Skating Judging System

The Figure Skating section of the ISU Congress approved the ISU Judging System for Figure Skating, Ice Dancing and Synchronized Skating for immediate implementation. The ISU Judging System received 43 votes out of a possible 54. Proposals require a two thirds majority to pass. In this case the minimum number of votes required for approval was 36. Proposals from Australia and Russia to modify the existing 6.0 judging system were rejected.

Following the vote, the Congress adopted a resolution to approve the ISU Judging System unanimously.

An amendment was accepted to increase the maximum number of judges in a panel from 10 to 12. A smaller number than 12 judges might be used for certain competitions. If 12 judges are used a random selection of 9 will be made. The highest and lowest marks will be omitted from the calculation, leaving the scores of 7 judges to form the result.

No other amendments were accepted.

Speed Skating

The World Allround Championships will in future be held over 2 days. Previously there was an option to hold the event over 3 days.

A proposal to make the European Speed Skating Championships open to non-European skaters was withdrawn.

A proposal to remove the menís 10,000m and the ladiesí 5,000m races from the European Speed Skating Championships was withdrawn.

A proposal to incorporate the World Sprint Championships into the World Single Distances Championships was withdrawn.

The Speed Skating section accepted a proposal to hold a Team Pursuit competition as part of the World Single Distances Speed Skating Championships.

In order to incorporate the Team Pursuit competitions in the Olympic Winter Games, the Speed Skating section approved a proposal to hold the two 500m races on the same day.

On Thursday, June 10 the Congress will continue discussions in the separate sections for Figure Skating and Speed Skating.
