A Soviet stamp dedicated to the 1984 European Speed Skating Championships for Women

The International Skating Union has organised the European Speed Skating Championships for Women since 1970, but they were discontinued after the 1974 tournament because of lack of interest. The European Championships for Women were reinstated in 1981.
