ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2023: Preview and stars to watch as Uno and Sakamoto look to defend titles in Japan
Could it be a golden world championship for host nation Japan?
The ISU World Figure Skating Championships are set for 22-26 March at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on the outskirts of Tokyo – returning to the site of Worlds in 2019.
That year it was only the now-retired Hanyu Yuzuru that landed on the podium for the home fans, winning silver, but the picture looks much different in 2023: Both Uno Shoma (men) and Sakamoto Kaori (women) are the reigning world champions in singles, while the duo of Miura Riku and Kihara Ryuichi aim to become the first from their country to win a pairs world title.
Saitama also hosted in 2014, when Hanyu and Asada Mao swept the world titles in front of the home crowd.
American teenagers Ilia Malinin and Isabeau Levito are eyeing respective big splashes, as their veteran teammates Madison Chock and Evan Bates clash with Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier of Canada (among other teams) for the ice dance title.
It’s the penultimate major international skating event of the post-Olympic season, with the biennial World Team Trophy set for April in Tokyo. all blacks game today
