2013 World Synchronized Skating Championships - Streaming schedule

Synchronized skating is a large and fast-growing discipline of figure skating where 8—20 (the number of skaters on a team depends on the level) skaters skate on ice as a team, moving as one flowing unit at high speeds. The discipline was originally called precision skating in North America because of the emphasis on maintaining precise formations and timing of the group.
