World Figure Skating Championships in 2020 Cancelled
Alexander Likiernik: Yes, the championship, as I expected, been canceled. His conduct was very problematic. And it is not the fact that Canada undertook to hold him. It is in Russia in 2011, when Japan was unable to take the championship, managed to do everything in three weeks.
And as the Championships are organized. All said, it is impossible, and we, in Moscow, did. And that championship was one of the best in the organization.
Alexander Likiernik: Canada is not an option. Nobody knows how the situation will develop with the coronavirus. Yes, we managed against all odds to hold in 2011 the world championship, but we understand that it will take place. And now, I’m sure it would be very risky in all respects.
