About Worlds 2013
About the Event
In 2013, London, Ontario’s Budweiser Gardens will be the centre of attention for the world of figure skating, the first time the event has been hosted in Canada since 2006 in Calgary.
As an annual event that moves around the globe, it attracts more than 150 million TV viewers world-wide and showcases the 200 best athletes from 50 countries in four disciplines: men’s, ladies, pair and ice dance.
Currently Canada has favorites in two of the four disciplines. Canadian Champion, Patrick Chan, is the holder of three world records and the reigning 2011 & 2012 World Champion. In Ice Dance, Olympic and World Champions, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, both from the London area, will be battling to add another world title to their list of successes.
Competition in London will not only name the world champions in all disciplines, it will also identify the numbers of entries qualifying countries may send to the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in Russia less than a year away.
Seeing “The Worlds” live is a rare opportunity. Feeling the tension and emotion, witnessing the speed and power, sitting in the JLC audience and watching the drama unfold is a not-to-be-missed sporting event.
