The postponement of the Event or alternatively the final cancellation is under evaluation. The same applies to the ISU World Team Trophy in Figure Skating scheduled to be held in Yokohama on April 14-17, 2011.
It is understood that a postponement of the above-mentioned World Championships as well as the holding of the ISU World Team Trophy is subject to the confirmation by the competent Japanese authorities that the situation is back to normal conditions allowing the safe conduct of major ISU sports Events in the Tokyo area.
As soon as the situation in this respect has been finalized, the ISU will inform all parties concerned of the decision taken.
