2008 World Figure Skating Championships


Recommended Posts

no 2001 was in Vancouver - 1999 was in Nice

Japan is unlikely since they just hosted in Nagano in 2002 or 2003 - so my guess for 2007 would be China or somewhere in Europe

2000 was in Nice, after the Brisbane fiasco caused by some "people." Nagano hosted 2002, after SLC 2002. Tokyo has the 2007 edition.

It will be interesting on which city will get the 2009 edition now. The last one before Vancouver 2010 because the world championships for that year occurs one month AFTER the Winter Olympics.

I can't find the full WFS list but if

2001 - Vancouver

2002 - Nagano

2003 - Washington DC

2004 - Dortmund, Germany (last held there in 1980)

2005 - Moscow

2006 - Calgary

2007 - Tokyo

2008 - Sweden

2009 - would probably be in the US since it was 6 years ago, and it cannot be in No. America for 2010.

2010 - probably in Europe because the WOGs are in Vancouver

Wouldn't surprise me, if a US city gets the 2009 edition. Like that list in the previous post, the one year before the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics, Cincinnati hosted the 1987 World Championships. It could be a repeat here in a way, before Vancouver 2010.

I pick- Cincinnati 2009

         Madrid 2010

         Harbin 2011

         Toronto 2012

         Zurich 2013

         Denver 2014 (If PyeongChang hosts 2014 WOG...)

if the US were to get 2009 it will most likely be Boston. After they hosted a very successful US Championships in 2001 it was reported that Boston is going for the bigger pie which is the World Championships. But i'd like to see the championships either in the West Coast or Mid-West since Washington D.C. just hosted it in 2003. By 2009 it would've been 17 years since the US West Coast has hosted the even (Oakland 1992). But if Boston bids and wins it would be great to see the championships at TD Banknorth Garden (formerly Fleet Center).

So for 2009, it might be between a chilly, snowy Boston, the sprawling Staples Center of temperate, sunny L.A., or last year's host of nationals - Tonya's own backyard of Portland, Oregon.

Yeah, Portland or Boston would be great, too. :)
