View Full Version : Poll: Where do YOU want 2011 Worlds to be held?
03-17-2011, 12:22 AM
With all the Worlds discussion in Great Skate Debate, just thought it'd be fun to run a poll and see where we, the fans, want to see 2011 Worlds held.
Just assume that any European city will hold a late spring competition.
My personal choice would be Lausanne. Even though Switzerland just held Europeans, it's been 14 years since they last had Worlds. Turin just had them last year, Sweden in 2008, and Moscow in 2005. I believe in spreading the wealth. :)

I voted for Lausanne, out of these choices. Hasn't the US offered Colorado Springs, though? If so, I would go for that as my first choice. I would also like to see at least some of the funds raised from Worlds to go towards relief/rebuilding for the Japanese people.

I don't really care where the worlds is held, so long as they aren't cancelled and i'd prefer if they took place sooner rather than later (ie not in October).
Hasn't the US offered Colorado Springs, though?
The USFSA has apparently offered Colorado Springs, Colorado and Lake Placid, New York.
Moscow is my choice because it is so close to a major international airport (very convenient), plus I wanted to see Russia host another worlds, even if it is a bare bones worlds.

My vote goes to Switzerland. :)

Indianapolis, IN !!!!
Or Colorado Springs to be more realistic :)

I will vote Malmo because I just got back in touch with a really good friend who lives there and I could stay with her. Not that I would be able to go, but if I could, I could stay with her. And I have never been to Sweden.
Torino- they've done events galore, but I wouldn't wish those seats on anyone.

You mean the option "My backyard" isn't even listed??? :eek: ;)

I'm saying Moscow because I think they can get more volunteers than the other cities.
but at this point I just want the Worlds to happen soon, I dont care where.

Euros already were in Switzerland.
So, maybe Turin. ;)

I think Moscow is now the place that offered most guarantees than the other candidates: they spoken clearly of main rink, practice rink, hotels, airport, visa, volunteers and knowledge in the nearby (since it's the same rink of the Cup of Russia)..they had government support and seems to me that it came after deep consideration (since in a first moment they denied having proposed their site, and they confirmed only today thorugh sport ministry).
then, let's see what happen...

I would love to see Worlds in Russia!!!
And I want to see Sotnikova and Tuktamysheva sitting in the audience cheering on the ladies - before they take over!!!
