This year, team "Space Time" from Kharkiv made its debut on the ice. This is the first synchronized skating team in Ukraine.

Alina Beletskaya who represented Ukraine at the 2015 World Junior Championships and Anastasia Pobizhenko who skates in pair with Dmytro Sharpar (they were at the 2016 Youth Olympic Games) are both members of the team.

So far they presented their program on two occasion in february in Kharkiv and last month in Kyiv.

It's only the start for them and they only train twice a week but they hope to develop synchro skating in Ukraine!
