A new project opened this summer. Led by two American synchro skaters, its mission is to develop synchronized skating by supporting skaters worldwide.
Training in Ankara, Turkey, the Vizyon junior team is ready for the new season. The Turkish champions have just completed two training camps.
The first synchro competitions will resume in about three months, with the highlight being the 2024 Junior and Senior World Championships. Do you know which countries can send two teams next year?
Márti Afonyi, 27, and Rita Farkas, 26, are two Hungarian synchronized skaters who finished their long careers in the country's national team, Team Passion, this year—for the second time. Originally quitting already in 2021, exhausted by the pandemic and new life changes, they both then decided to return for one more year for the 2022-2023 season which turned out to be a great Hungarian success story. In this interview, the girls reflect on their personal journey as well as their team's journey to the synchronized skating elite and share their biggest takeaways from the sport.
