Vlog – When World Championships get forgotten

March 25, 2010

I’m covering the world figure skating championships in Turin where there is a real feeling of anti-climax given they come just a month after the Winter Olympics. Several champions have withdrawn.

As discussed in the video above, should world championships in certain sports skip a year when the Olympics take place?

Another fantastic post. I think that skipping a year is a horrible idea; it would mess up my perfectly compiled tables of World Championship stats!
