Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

Combining in a mixed team from different National Olympic Committees (NOCs) calling itself ‘Team Courage’ athletes from Estonia, Russia, Japan and Georgia were bold enough to win gold medals at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lausanne 2020.

Eight teams with competitors of mixed nationality participated in the Figure Skating Mixed NOC Team Event; each team composed of one man, one woman, one pair and one Ice Dance couple from different NOCs.

Each skater or couple earned the points for the team competing in Free Skating or Free Dance. Within each event, points were awarded based on the ranking.

The teams were ranked based on the sum of points earned in all four categories. Team Courage had the highest number of points and was placed first.

For gold medal winning ‘Team Courage’ 14-year old Arlet Levandi from Estonia competed in Men’s Single Skating. The silver medallist from the Women’s Single Skating, Russia’s Ksenina Sinitsyna, who is 15, competed in the same discipline for this team event. 

The Pair’s Skaters were 14-year old Alina Butaeva and 17-year old Luka Berulava, of Georgia. The Ice Dancing couple were Japanese athletes 16-year old Utana Yoshida from Okayama  and 17-year old Shingo Nishiyama from Tokyo.

Because the event was classified as a Mixed NOC event, the Olympic flag was raised in all three positions at the medal ceremony.
