The World Figure Skating Championships is an annual figure skating competition sanctioned by the International Skating Union in which elite figure skaters compete for the title of World Champion. This event is considered the most prestigious of the ISU Championships. Skaters compete in men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

The 2000 Worlds were held at the Palais des Exposition Nice in Nice, France from March 23 to April 3.[1]

Competition notes[edit]

Due to the large number of participants, the ladies and men's qualifying groups were split into groups A and B.

This event had originally been awarded to Brisbane, Australia. However, in late August 1999, the ISU reassigned the event to Nice, allegedly due to failure of the Australian organizers to provide adequate broadcast services.[2][3]

There were two accidents resulting in withdrawals. Julia Obertas / Dmitri Palamarchuk, who were 10th after the short program, withdrew from the pairs event after a fall during the free skating. Palamarchuk caught an edge (right skate) while executing an overhead lift with Obertas – she was uninjured in the resulting fall but he hit his head on the ice.[4] Palamarchuk lay on the ice for several minutes before getting up and leaving the ice on his own but then lost consciousness and was taken to hospital – no damage was found but he was kept overnight for observation.[4]

In the ice dancing event, Albena Denkova / Maxim Staviski, who were 8th after the original dance, were also forced to withdraw. She was seriously injured in the practice before the free dance when Peter Tchernyshev's blade slashed her leg above her boot, severing two tendons and a muscle.[5]

Pair skater Stéphane Bernadis said he was attacked on March 28 by an unknown assailant with a razor – resulting in an eight inch cut down his left forearm – when he opened his hotel room door.[6][7][8] Bernadis said he had received a death threat three weeks earlier.[9]

Over 52,000 tickets were sold.[10]
