The Marie Lundmark Trophy in Finland is ready to welcome teams from all over the world from January 21 to 23, 2022. The sanitary conditions in the country are good and the public is allowed.
At the moment, the Covid-19 situation is better in Finland. Sports events can have supporters again, and the organizing committee is very confident because competitions can be held again quite normally in Finland. Also, the major part of the citizens has got a Covid-19 vaccination.
For this third stage of the 2021-2022 Challenger Series, the Marie Lundmark Trophy organizing committee (OC) expects synchro teams coming from outside Europe because all synchro skaters and staff are now anxious to participate in competitions after such a long break.
The organizing committee has started marketing cooperation with local authorities to give fans great tourism opportunities.
Turku is Finland´s oldest town and the former Finnish capital. This university city is situated on seven hills and in the arms of the archipelago. The Aura River, flowing through the center, is the heart and soul of the city, and nothing can be more pleasant on a sunny winter day than to follow it down to the sea by walk or by skate.
"If you are planning a tour to Europe, we would be pleased to see you in Finland! Our team has a good reputation and strong experience organizing successful events. Finnish figure skating fans are the most enthusiastic in the world, and you can be sure that there will be enough sound in the ice rink. The competition will be organized in the City of Turku, which can be reached directly by train (or by plane) from Helsinki-Vantaa airport," adds the organizing committee.
Preliminary entries have ended and the organizing committee is excited to see that there are teams from around the world. Registration is open until Dec. 22nd on the official website!
