Tracking ISU and U.S. Figure Skating Events, Issues and Governance
France’s Didier Gailhaguet has claimed the sport should give him a chance to replace Ottavio Cinquanta as President of the International Skating Union (ISU), despite having served a ban following one of the biggest judging scandals in Olympic history.
György Sallak, the Hungarian National Skating Federation director general and the ISU’s development coordinator, is widely expected to announce shortly he will be standing for the Presidency.
