The first edition of Stars Cup will take place on 13 and 14 February 2021 in Torun, Poland. This will be the first time this historical city will host an international synchro skating event.
"Everything in our town is associated with the solar system. Even the name of our club and synchro teams Le Soleil ("sun" in French). We decided to call this competition "Stars Cup" because we believe that all skaters who will take part in our competition are really serious stars [on ice]," explains Karolina Dabrowska-Pawlonka. The head coach of Le Soleil teams is also involved in the event organisation.
"For many years, we are traveling around Europa to participate in synchronized skating competitions. We already organized synchronized skating national championships in Torun. Now we're ready to create a big synchronized skating event in our city. We would like to show to the synchro family, that we can offer them an amazing competition. I hope that some abroad teams come to us and try," continues Karolina Dabrowska-Pawlonka.
Are you also working on another concept, maybe with fewer spectators, just in case?
"I believe that everything will be normal in February, but of course, if needed, we'll provide a restrictive health plan. Fewer spectators, more disinfection... We are ready for it."
