Competition notes[edit]

  • The compulsory dance was the Golden Waltz. 2010 Worlds were the final event to include a compulsory dance. The last compulsory dance in competition was skated by Federica Faiella and Massimo Scali.[3] Canada's Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir set a world record for the original dance, earning 70.27 points,[4] 2010 Worlds were also the final event to include an original dance.
  • Daisuke Takahashi became the first Japanese man to win a world title. He attempted a quad flip which made him the first gold medalist to try a quad since 2007 Worlds, but he underrotated the jump, making him the third champion in a row not to land one successfully.[5]
  • Mao Asada became the first figure skater from Asia to win multiple world titles.
  • Laura Lepistö became the first Finn to medal in ladies' singles at the World Championships.[6]
