The International Skating Union (ISU) is celebrating Olympic Day by launching a special training campaign in collaboration with athletes from its various disciplines.

The body has invited the ice skating community to take part, with Olympic Day being celebrated today, as it supports the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) Let's Move initiative.

The IOC project encourages people to set aside at least 30 minutes a day for physical activity and it has created a digital invitation to help ensure this.

"To inspire its community to move more, the ISU has brought to life the IOC's message by bringing together skaters from all over the globe, who were keen on sharing their daily sports and wellbeing routines," read an ISU statement.

"All these contributions are compiled into a special ISU 'Training Campaign', which is to be discovered as from today and throughout the month of July on all ISU digital channels.

"With movement being beneficial to hearts, bodies and minds, this campaign aims at highlighting easy-replicable techniques and advice from skaters to lead healthy lifestyles both physically and mentally.

"Three interrelated areas will be covered in a series of video contents - workout exercises, nutritional tips and recovery methods.

"An opportunity for ice-skating lovers and the sports community at large to get to know the skaters' season preparation not only at the rink, but also at the gym, in their kitchens and even in their free time."

Among the participating athletes are European figure skating bronze medallist Kimmy Repond of Switzerland, South Korea's world short track speed skating champion Park Ji-won, and two-time Olympian and World Cup medallist speed skater Viktor Hald Thorup of Denmark.

They will be publicising their training in the hope of motivating others to get active not just on Olympic Day but on a regular basis.
