The World Figure Skating Championships 2010 (WC, MM) will be held at Palavela arena in Torino, Italy (Yes, it reminds us Kiira in the 2006 Olympics) and is really coming soon!

Representing Finland, Kiira Korpi and Laura Lepistö will participate in the competition.

According to YLE news: 55 skaters take part to the Worlds (you can see the Entries list). Among the skaters who participate Laura is 5th according to world ranking, and Kiira is 10th, which means that they will be in the two last groups on Friday. So we guess Kiira in second to last, and Laura in last. And the Finnish Figureskating Association‘s official target is to get three places for the Worlds next year. That would require a sum of places no more than 13.

Go Kiira and Laura to get 3 places for Finland!
