CITIZEN Official Sponsor for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2013
CITIZEN proudly announce the sponsorship for the ISU World Figure Skating Championship 2013, which is to be held from March 11th to the 17th at Ontario, Canada. Top 200 figure skaters from around the world representing over 50 different countries will compete in four disciplines: men’s, ladies, pair and ice dance.
This competition is significant because it will not only nominate world champions for each category, it will also decide the numbers of entries qualifying countries may send to the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in Russia less than a year away.
Since 1982, CITIZEN have remained among the world’s most enthusiastic supporter of international skating competitions organised by the International Skating Union. The sport of figure skating is known for its highly skilled disciplines involving graceful movement and coordination which require incredible concentration and practiced technique.
Sharing these same core passions and admiration in their watch-making tradition, CITIZEN continue to strive for excellence through their distinctive philosophy of “The Fusion of Technology and Beauty.”
