The last date listed for World Figure Skating Championships 2009 was Sunday March 29, 2009 / 2:00pm (Exhibition of Champions).
Figure skaters are entered into the championships by country. Each International Skating Union Member (national association) may enter one skater or team in each event. Some countries are permitted to enter 2 or 3 participants if their skaters performed well at the previous year’s championships.
Each year different countries bid with the ISU for the rights to host the World Championships. Since its inception in 1896, the event has been hosted all around the world. More recently, Japan hosted the event in 2007 and Sweden in 2008. The championships were last held in the United States in Washington, D.C. in 2003. America will most likely not host the world championships again until 2015.
