CITIZEN has been involved with international figure skating for more than a decade and is proud to sponsor the ISU World Figure Skating Championship 2013, which was held from March 11th to the 17th in Ontario, Canada.
The top 200 figure skaters from around the world representing over 50 different countries compete in four disciplines: men’s, ladies, pair and ice dance. This competition is important because it will not only choose world champions for each category; it will also decide the numbers of entries that qualifying countries may send to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia.
Since 1982, CITIZEN has remained among the world’s most enthusiastic supporter of international skating competitions organized by the International Skating Union. The sport of figure skating is known for its highly skilled disciplines involving coordination and graceful movement which require incredible concentration and practiced technique.
Sharing these same core passions and admiration in their watch-making tradition, CITIZEN continues to strive for excellence through their distinctive philosophy of “The Fusion of Technology and Beauty.”
