World Figure Skating Championships, Moscow 2011

The 2011 World Figure Skating Championships get under way on 25 April in Moscow with the preliminary rounds. The event was rescheduled and relocated from Tokyo after the devastating tsunami in Japan.

The schedule for the rest of the event is:

Wednesday 27 April: Men’s short programme; Pairs’ short programme
Thursday 28 April: Men’s free programme, Pairs’ free programme
Friday 29 April: Ladies’ short programme; Ice Dance short programme
Saturday 30 April: Ladies’ free programme; Ice Dance free programme
Sunday 1 May: Exhibition gala

TV coverage on Eurosport in the UK begins on Wednesday 27 April at 17.45 with the pairs short. On Thursday 28 April, coverage starts at 16.10 with the pairs free, followed at 18:00 by the men’s free. The short dance is at 17:45 on Friday 29 April and repeated at 08:15 on Saturday 30 April. Also on Saturday, the ladies’ free starts at 13:00 and the free dance at 17:30 (repeated 09:00 Sunday). The exhibition gala is at 22:00 on Sunday 1 May. All times are according to Eurosport’s TV schedule: start times and duration may change, especially if world snooker championship coverage overruns. Some events – the men’s and ladies’ short programmes – have no UK TV coverage.

There appears to be no coverage on the BBC, not even on the Red Button channels for sport.
