THE ROBERT UNGER ISI COMPETITION
APRIL 28-30, 2023
Started in 1970, the annual Robert Unger ISI Skating Competition (formerly known as the Mississippi Valley District Invitational Team Competition -- MVDC) is the oldest continuously running figure skating competition endorsed by the Ice Sports Industry (ISI). In 1977, this competition became the first international ISI skating competition.
A Little History:
The history of recreational competition continues to build as each new generation participates in innovations of the ISI program. The Robert Unger philosophy of "something for everyone" is certainly shared by ISI. New ISI events such as Creative Figures and Free Dance have been developed and proven at this competition. Mr. Unger recalled those early days:
"The first competition had practically no rules except good sportsmanship, ethics, and the attitude that this is not the last day of your life!"
