World Figure Skating Championships in Nice, France
The countdown is on… three weeks till the World Figure Skating Championships in Nice, France. I’ll be at the final events for the mens, womens and pairs competitions and will report back. In the meantime, I’m going out on a limb and making predictions. Here goes!
Dance: Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. These two are hungry to win back their World title and have the chance to do it with their charming “Funny Face” free dance.
Pairs: I’d put my money on Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy from Germany, but I haven’t been able to confirm that they’ll be competing after withdrawing from Europeans due to injury. The Russians, Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov, are certainly in winning form after a strong season and a recent win at the European Championships.
Men: Patrick Chan. A gold medal here would be a fitting end to a remarkable season.
Just to get you in the mood, here’s the promo video for Worlds in France:
