Does Bulgaria get Junior Worlds about every other year or am I imagining? :P
No, you're not imagining. I can't help but think that the hosts of Junior Worlds sometimes struggle to break even (in expenses), judging by how few spectators attend. It does bring a bit of prestige, but only the most die hard figure skating fans, athletes, officials, coaches, and family members pay attention because it isn't even broadcast on the internet with any kind of reliability.

They must have a lot of applications for 2014 Europeans. I'd love to see Spain host, but who knows if they're even bidding.
Great to see Taipei hosting another Four Continents.

I figured that the price of Russia hosting the 2011 Worlds would be the reinstatement of Plushy. And so it is.

Yes, Mao, Miki, Daisuke and Nobunari will all probably retire after the 2013/2014 season.

I am sure Fumie will still be around :lol:

It's true.

Interesting, and you know that how?

millipied, I meant that I believe that the Russian FSU and the ISU struck a deal. Russia would help out the ISU by holding the Worlds in exchange for the ISU reinstating Plushy.

I'm off on holiday for 3 weeks, so won't be able to respond more.

Which, truthfully, makes it look like Russia can't bargain at all, because as has been stated elsewhere, the rules allow for Plushenko to apply for reinstatement, and frankly, Plushenko skating is better for competitive figure skating on the whole. Now, if Plushenko skates a lot of shows and ignores competing, I expect that'll change, but I don't think he will.

2014??? I was hoping it was not going to be an Olympics year.... :(:(

Also what they mean by "Saitama"? If it is Saitama Super Arena, that is the arena with no best seat. :(

Sofia has had Jr. Worlds in 2001, 2008 and 2009. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Junior_Figure_Skating_Championships) So far it's been a lucky charm for the US Men. :) ;) :D :saint:

No offense, but I've been to post Olympics worlds, and they are great as well. Yes, some competitors may not come, but it is still a wonderful competition. :) And besides, Japan has certainly played host to a lot of wonderful skating events in the past decade, a post-Olympics Worlds isn't too much of a let down, I should think. :lol:

Judging how a lot top ladies/men are from Japan, I'd assume they would compete at home ice even it is a post Olympics World.
