- The Gallina Blanca is one of the premiere events on the International Skating Union's Grand Prix tour. Huge crowds of locals pack the sparkling new Ice Palace to see the world's best skaters in all disciplines, and often leave very happy. Russians Evgeni Plushenko won the men's event, Irina Slutskaya the ladies', and Berezhnaya and Sikharulidze the pairs in 2001. The event runs Thursday to Sunday with the mens', ladies' and pairs' finals on Saturday and the dance finals on Sunday.
