ISU create historical moment for Cyprus!

Posted: 12th September 2012

ISU have officially awarded the Cyprus Skating Federation and Kristina Dubrovskaya the certification to skate for her country.

Kristina, whos hard work has paid off, has been training with Yuri Bureiko at ISS Coventry has been awarded certification from the ISU and is eligible to skate at all ISU Competitions for her country.

The Cyprus Skating Federation is young in age, but in its short existence has been a huge support for many young talented skaters who are training with the ambition to skate for their country. Not known for its winter sports, this will be a huge historical moment for both Cyprus and Kristina. Kristina will be the first skater that has represented Cyprus in the solo ladies free skate category.

Former Russian born, Kristina started skating at a young age in Moscow and then moved with her parents to Cyprus, she is now training along side Yuri in preparation for the up and coming Junior grand prix and the forth coming season.

Yuri has recently come back from Cyprus where he delivered a Master Class and met with the Cyprus Skating federation and Andreas Georgiades, President of the Cyprus Skating Federation and sports commentator of RIK. Andreas is really excited and hopeful about the future of figure skating in Cyprus, and is hoping this is just the start of things to come for the sport.

Yuri went on to say:

“There is some great skating talent in Cyprus and lots of potential, all aiming high and hoping to represent their country, it was great to get out there and work with these skaters, I was really inspired and im looking forward to the future and working with these guys to see what they can achieve”
