ISU president annexes Iceland and declares himself King of Everything Icy. For some reason nobody objects.
He combines curling and figure skating into one event. At the same time.
Curling takes place in the middle of the rink.
The men have to perform jumps over the moving curling stones and players. Bonus points for whoever manages not to break any bones when hydroblading under the brooms limbo-style.
The women now only have to do various spins in circles around the curling team. The winner is the one who passes out last. This will stop after a few seasons because nobody can afford the insurance fee anymore. Too many ladies had spun out of control and flew into the audience like propellers. Many female skaters retired because of this change, but made a new career as human knife throwers.
Pairs is abolished because there's no real difference to Ice dance anyway.
Ice dance gets moved to the Summer Olympics and must now be performed on roller skates.
Figure skaters will no longer have a problem with costumes. They all have to wear the outfits of their respective nation's women's beach volleyball team.
