French main channels to broadcast World championships

Nelson Monfort, Annick Dumont and Philippe Candeloro

One of the main French TV channels – France 2 and France 3 – will broadcast 2013 World figure skating championships, reports the magazine Premiere.

According to the publication, good results and performances of French figure skaters at the 2013 European Championships in Zagreb contributed to this decision. Also, French television took into account the fact that the competitions in London, Canada will be the last of the most significant worldwide skating events before the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

In the role of commentators will work Nelson Monfort, a famous television host and sports journalist on France Televisions, together with no less famous Annick Dumont and Philippe Candeloro.

The 2013 World figure skating championships will be held in London (ON), Canada from March 10–17.
