    ISU to propose expansion of Worlds fields; 2020 Worlds unlikely to be rescheduled

    What point are you trying to make here? Because that certainly has never been the position of the ISU. So, you’re either confused or failing at subtle condescension.

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    Wow. In competition, that would be an unbeatable skate. There's just too much base value for anyone else to contend with. I definitely feel for the 3As. Most likely, they all would have had their first Worlds Medal, and one, a first World Title.

    ISU Cancels 2020 World Figure Skating Championships

    I was really excited for Worlds before *********-19. Hearing about the cancellation, I’m not at all disappointed. The ISU is also lucky Quebec made the decision for them.

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    When Worlds in Japan got cancelled after Fukushima, the only reason Worlds was still held that year was because Putin was able to bend the Russian Bureaucracy to his will, expediting visas, ensuring a proper venue, and also helping to finance the event. I don't see Worlds being held this year...

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    At this point, it's best they cancel the event, or postpone it to summer if Russia can host again (and willing to put up $ to do so.) Holding a closed event without spectators would be a financial disaster.

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    I imagine that’s what the ISU is waiting for, and why they haven’t cancelled on their own accord. They’ve simply spent too much at this point. Their insurance policy probably only covers cases where the ISU has to cancel due to a government body forcing them to do so, or acts of nature or war...

    I’m just seeing the silver lining, better chance for Spain to get 2 spots.

    2020 WJC Ladies SP & FS - 48? They Raised the Wrong Minimums

    The anti-Eteri crowd is just as dedicated to their positions as the pro-Eteri crowd. Not surprised by the leaps in logic either way. 🤷‍♂️

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    It was brave of him to make this decision, and then explain the reasons publicly. My heart goes out to both Chris and Alexa. Depression is tough, and can take awhile to even recognize in yourself. I'm glad they seem to have an open relationship where they can communicate honestly. I know...

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    In the Bukin vs. Katsalapov debate, I’d rather watch Katsalapov any day of the week. He’s absolutely marvelous to watch just skating by himself. He just glides with such presence and command. He’s so much better alone than with a partner... but still better than Bukin when partnered IMO. I...
