How old Dore is? I think ISU have age limit for ISU president

Born 1940, so he's 70 or 71.

Good luck to the Russian Federation in getting things together in a short period of time. I'm sure with the government's support, things will go well.

And it is a relief for all the skaters to be able to end this season with a championship. Hope all that get to go enjoy their time in Moscow!

I heard: Worlds 2011 to be held in Moscow, Russia. 24th April to 1st May.
(not yet confirmed officially)

I totally trusted this, and soon afterwards came confirmations.



It is officially confirmed: Worlds 2011 in Moscow

We finally have a new pope.
(And since part of the athlets were probably to skate in WTT in April, that's not even too much after the original end of their season).



Moscow, what a surprise! ;)

I know nothing, and yet I predicted (and wrote) it was going to be Russia.
Somewhat uncomfortably easy prediction.

Great news to come home to from night shift, wooo! :cheer2:

And thank goodness it's not a week later when I'd have no time to catch up every day. :) I know watching live will be a no-go but I can live with that. I'm just so glad we'll have Worlds anywhere. Spasibo Russia!

just glad worlds will take place and that the federation most willing to host on such short notice was awarded the bid. can't believe this is only their 4th worlds i think.
