Ice skating's governing body voted to raise the minimum age for senior competition to 17, months after the doping scandal involving Russian skater Kamila Valieva at the Beijing Olympics.

The decision by the International Skating Union (ISU) congress in Phuket, Thailand, lifts the age limit from 15 and will be phased in gradually, reaching age 17 in the 2024-25 season.
