    I found many tweets about the postponement of 4 weeks but can't find a good source or details.

    This is a much quoted source but no details. Nothing new on ISU site yet.

    Thanks for the correction! Does it say the championships would still be held in Tokyo?

    Can't wait for an official announcement from ISU.

    Actually this headline only says the opening ceremony will be postponed.

    eta Now there is an actual news article about Worlds being postponed but you need subscription to read it.

    Figure skating: World championships in Tokyo to be postponed

    Gee, I was able to read a couple of their other news without subscription.

    It's official http://www.isu.org/vsite/vcontent/co...s-item,00.html

    No word on how long the postponement will be or if it will be held at all. They mention the team trophy as well. Hopefully they will just be postponed and not canceled all together.

    I hope the ISU is in close contact with the competitors and coaches so training schedules and travel arrangements can be planned accordingly. I would hate to see someone miss out because they couldn't get a flight.

    As I read the new ISU statement, WC and WTT won't be outside Japan.
    Because it says that the realizations of these 2 events depend on the confirmation of the normal safety by the Japanese authorities.

    I believe that ISU communique of 14 March mentions that postponement or cancellation is under evaluation. So there is no official decision as of yet. It is the ISU that has the power to postpone or cancel on the basis of the JF and other Japanese factors.

    Further discussion of the ISU's actions on the quake should go here. Further discussions on the quake, the nuclear reactors, and the tsunami, should go in a thread that I'm moving to Le Cafe.

    Here's the link to the Earthquake, Reactor and Tsunami discussion:

    Thanks for splitting the two, D. Will be much easier to follow discussions that way.

    Looks like the ISU are actively looking at moving the event to Europe in April. Apparently the German Paarlauf club has reported that 3 cities (probably Bern, Torino, and Malmo) have told the ISU that they can hold the championships in 4 weeks time. Hence, I think that all the signs are pointing to Bern holding the event in the 2nd or 3rd week of April.
