Dear Sports Friends and Colleagues
With a heavy heart, and still looking for words to describe our loss, we regret to inform you that Yuliya Baitursynova, the Secretary of the Skating Federation of Kazakhstan, passed away on 26 February 2020. She suffered from a heart failure, having been fighting a serious medical condition for some time. She passed away at her home in Almaty.
Yuliya has worked at the Federation since 2011 and made a significant contribution to the development of the sport in Kazakhstan. She was a dear colleague who has touched the hearts of so many of us at the Federation, and her death was sudden and heartbreaking.
She will be missed dearly by her family, friends and colleagues.
