2011 Worlds: Japan Can't Hold it, But Maybe Another Country Still Can...
Spring has officially sprung, but our favorite winter sport is still looking for a workable way to wrap up the season.
For those of us wishing that the ISU would relocate Worlds shortly rather than cancel them or move them to the start of next season… there’s still hope. As of today (the day Worlds was originally to begin), the only definitive decision made thus far is that Japan will not be able to host an event there in 2011. So the World Team Trophy has been moved to April of next year (still in Japan). As for Worlds… looks like they’re going to take their time to examine all the options… probably a wise decision, though admittedly it’s brutal on the athletes involved.
