Opening ceremony

Opening Ceremony

72 skaters from 13 different clubs unite on the ice to skate an interpretation of Sweden’s history.
Starting in the Ice Age, where Swedish champion Anita Östlund gives sparkling life to a time when the ice layed like a heavy blanket over the entire country.
From the Ice Age we are taken on a journey through time, where we meet Vikings, people from the Middle Ages and turn of the century-waltzes before we land in the present day with a luminous show performed by Team Explosion.

The opening ceremony ends with a flag ceremony held by Team Moonlights.

Lowe Bjurman sings the national anthem

No opening ceremony without singing. Eleven year old Lowe Bjurman has already performed at some of the biggest stages of Stockholm and at the official opening ceremony, he gets the prestigious task to sing our national anthem.
