SHOULD EVENT HAVE BEEN CANCELED? In Chicago, Philip Hersh wrote the ISU’s decision “is nice for the athletes who have earned places at worlds and have trained so hard to perform at their best," but the event "should have been cancelled.” The championships have been "rendered utterly insignificant by the devastation in Japan.” Hersh: “Having to give up the event to another country, although hardly consequential in the big picture, is another painful circumstance for Japan to endure” (CHICAGOTRIBUNE.com, 3/24).
