Boston awarded 2016 World Championships The International Skating Union


(ISU) announced in June that U.S. Figure Skating has been awarded the 2016 ISU World Figure Skating Championships March 28–April 3 at TD Garden in Boston. “We are thrilled to welcome the


best fi gure skaters in the world back to the United States,” U.S. Figure Skating President Patricia St. Peter said. “We have a great tradition of hosting high caliber international events. We are confi dent the city of Boston and The Skating Club of Boston will welcome our fi gure skat- ing family with the same excitement they have aff orded to other domestic and international events in recent years.” Boston most recently hosted the 2013 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships


in April and is also set to welcome the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the fi nal qualifying event prior to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, in January at TD Garden. “The Skating Club of Boston is extremely pleased to have been chosen to work with U.S.


Figure Skating to host the 2016 World Championships,” Club President Joe Blount said. “In its 100-year history, The Skating Club of Boston has never hosted the World Championships. This will be a thrilling opportunity for all of us to welcome the world to Boston. We promise a mem- orable event both on and off the ice.” The World Championships will return to the United States for the fi rst time since 2009


when the event was held in Los Angeles. The 2016 World Championships will mark the 13th time the event will be held in the U.S. and the fi rst time it will be held in Boston. Approximately 160 skaters from more than 40 countries will compete at the event.


‘COUNTDOWN TO SOCHI’ Ryan Bradley, Max Aaron and Josh Farris helped add to the excite- ment of Universal Sports Network’s announcement of its new show, “Countdown to Sochi,” a


14-week studio news show showcasing the most compelling storylines heading into the 2014 Winter Games. Bradley, the 2011 U.S. champion; Aaron, the reigning U.S. champion; and Farris, the reigning World Junior champion, helped kick things off May 15 by giving an invited audi- ence a sneak peek at the show’s format. “Countdown to Sochi” host Craig Hummer interviewed the three athletes on the set as part of Universal Sports Network’s open house for its new pro- duction center in suburban Denver. Scott Brown, the newly appointed president of Universal Sports Network, said the show will premiere on Oct. 30.
