It was in Quebec City and Sochi the last 2 years. At least its a new Japanese City. The first 3 times (2000-01, 2005-06, 2009-10) were all staged by Tokyo.

Boston would make a good Figure Skating World Champs host and setting in 2016. They'll probably get it; and then Helsinki hosts in 2017. Then Sochi in 2018 as is the ongoing pattern, it seems.

That pattern wasn't followed in 2006 or 2014.

2006 was held in Calgary, a former Olympic host city.

2014 will, as of now, be in Saitama/Tokyo. But it's pretty much in an ex-Olympic city in another continent from the one holding the WOGs.

yup. since Helsinki will be pretty much a neutral ground. By the time 2016 Worlds roll around, it'll be 7 years since the last US Worlds and if Boston gets it, will be their first which is pretty surprising since most of the US skaters pre-61 crash were from the Boston area.

IF Boston gets it, of course, the crash victims of 1961 will be remembered. And then look at the year a Worlds comes to their area (and I am sure with the recent events in Boston still fresh in everyone's minds)...it will be 2016. Is that some sort of spooky numerology or what? :blink:

nothing spooky nor coincidental about the numbers. 2016 will mark 55 years of the since the crash that led to the cancellation of Prague 1961 Worlds. just a note, next year's US Nationals will be the centennial and Boston is also hosting it.

Of course it's spooky. And 55 isn't really a "special" milestone year. It's usually 50, 60 or 75. So, I guess we just view numerology differently.
