World Championships Called Off, possibly cancelled

New, 2 comments

The world figure skating championships have been called off for now, and will possibly be canceled.  The World Team Trophy that was to be held in Japan in April has also been called off.  

From Universal Sports' quote of International Skating Union president Ottavio Cinquanta:

"The ISU's primary concern (is) for the safety of all participants, spectators and members of concerned entities as well as the travel advisories from many governments to avoid travel to Japan until the situation is settled," Cinquanta said in a statement.

"The postponement of the event or alternatively the final cancellation is under evaluation," the Italian official said.

The World Team Trophy in figure skating, scheduled to be held in Yokohama on April 14-17, also has been called off.

 

I do hope they find some way to hold the world championships at some point.
