Review from Pamela-Beth Heisler

This event was both memorable and phenomenal. To see such skilled skaters from all over the world in their magnificent costumes was a sight to behold. It was definitely an awesome event.

Review from LadyK

Watching these athletes in action live is VERY different than on television. I highly recommend attending this event if you have even a minor interest in ice skating. I went on a whim and left a much bigger fan. So beautiful and graceful!

Amazing, the world's finest in one central location, you can't do any better than that. Loved it.

Description

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.
