The Ice Challenge (formerly known as the Leo-Scheu-Gedächtnislaufen or Leo Scheu Memorial) is an annual international figure skating competition organized by the Austrian Figure Skating Association and sanctioned by the International Skating Union. The event is usually held every autumn in Graz, Austria. Medals may be awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. In 2014 and 2015, the Ice Challenge's senior events were part of the ISU Challenger Series.

History[edit]

The event began in 1971 as the Leo-Scheu-Gedächtnislaufen (Leo Scheu Memorial). It was re-titled the Ice Challenge in 2008.[1] The name Leo Scheu Memorial was retained for a junior, novice, and lower-level competition that is held in conjunction with the senior event.

In 2011, the ISU designated the Ice Challenge as one of the events at which skaters could achieve a minimum score.[2] In 2014 and 2015, the Ice Challenge's senior events were part of the ISU Challenger Series. The 2016 edition was cancelled.[3]
