I think I ll agree with Medusa! France, Germany, England wherever!Or Greece
I hear ES is not showing the GPs this season .
Seniorita - Worlds in Greece would be fantastic! Much better weather in late March than most of Europe. Let's start a petition.
Other Joubert news: he promised Laurent Depouilly and Didier Gailhaguet he would not ride his motorcycle until the end of the season, or the Olympics, or whatever. Normally I'm opposed to DG making decisions for Brian, but in this case it strikes me as a wise course of action .
No eurosport?Well russian tv again.. At least this year I might understand a word or two..
Greece has no ice rink of proper dimensions(or of any dimensions), but imagine we can bring skating outdoors again in a frozen lake!!that would be great!And then we have an after skating party in Mykonos.
Greece has no ice rink but it has frozen lakes ? In March? Heh, we have you beat on ice rinks! Anyway, I'm still in favor of Greece. Spain would also be nice.Greece has no ice rink of proper dimensions(or of any dimensions), but imagine we can bring skating outdoors again in a frozen lake!!that would be great!And then we have an after skating party in Mykonos.
More generally, it's not that unusual for worlds to be held in Europe so closely together. 2004, 2005, 2008, 2010 had Worlds in European cities (Dortmund, Moscow, Gothenburg and Turin, respectively).
So, figure skating is shrinking in Europe too? With those strong competitors at hands, such as Joubert, Verner, and Lambiel, and the pairs teams, and dance teams? And it's Olympic season?

No we need Worlds to be held in Sheffield in the UK. The main reason being that it is about an hours drive from my house so I could attend the whole thing!!
Another good reason would be that there is a big Arena that could put the main competition on and Ice Sheffield is walking distance from the Arena with two ice pads for practice ice - it would be perfect! Does anyone from the ISU read these forums?
