Canada Picks it Place

Skate Canada has announced that London, Ontario will host the 2010 Canadian National Figure Skating Championships. This event will serve as the Olympic Trials for the Canadian team for the Olympics which also take place in Canada in Vancouver just six weeks later.

"Everything we need to host a first-class skating event can be found in London," said William Thompson, Skate Canada CEO. "They have always welcomed athletes, volunteers and fans with open arms and 2010 will be no exception."

Confused geographically...London sits halfway between Detroit and Toronto.

This is the second time that London will play host to the BMO Canadian Figure Skating Championships. The city first held the event in 2005. London was also the site of the highly successful 2007 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships.
