The IFS June 2021 issue features extended coverage of the 2021 World Championships. With the results of the 2021 World Championships determining Olympic berths for 2022, the competition was fierce in all disciplines. Russia’s Anna Shcherbakova continued her season-long golden run when she claimed the ladies title in her debut at the competition. Stockholm also proved to be a lucky place for Nathan Chen of the U.S. who captured his third consecutive title.

The career of Czech star Michal Březina began at a small junior competition in Slovakia in 2003, but he will likely call an end to his 18-year journey on the biggest stage of them all at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, China.
