Having made its mark on countries such as Canada, America and the UK, figure skating has now landed in Abu Dhabi. After building a number of indoor and outdoor rinks with artificial cooling systems dedicated to the public to enhance their skating skills, there are now a number of enthusiastic figure skating teams that are eager to participate in competitions. Luckily for them, the Desert Open Figure Skating Championship is back for the third year running at Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi. This ice-based sport has gained some serious recognition in the Middle East over the past couple of years and is set to continue its growth in popularity. The group of people interested in this sport is proving to be phenomenal already. Last year the Desert Open involved five teams of skaters to compete for the annual title, now this year the teams involved has rose to seven. The Desert Open Championship will begin on Friday 28th June and until Saturday 29th June. The competition will be judged on technique, artistic spotlight and footwork.
