The 2009 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships was the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships for the 2008–2009 season. Skaters competed in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pairs, and ice dancing. The competition was open to skaters from a non-European Member nation of the International Skating Union. The four continents of the event's name refer to the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Oceania, which are four of the continents represented in the Olympic rings, omitting Europe.

The competition was held from February 2 to 8, 2009 at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, Canada.

Competition notes[edit]

Skaters who reached the age of 15 by July 1, 2008 were eligible to compete. Unlike the other three ISU championships, each nation was allowed three entries in each discipline, regardless of its skaters' performance in the previous year's championships. The corresponding competition for European skaters was the 2009 European Figure Skating Championships.

This event served as the Olympic test event for figure skating for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games although the rink was NHL-sized.[1] The compulsory dance was the Finnstep. In the ladies' event, Kim Yu-Na set a new ISU World Record of 72.24 points for the ladies short program.[2]
