London, Ont., will welcome the world this week for the 2013 World Figure Skating Championships and I'm thrilled to tell you that I'll be there to cover all the behind-the-scenes action.

Coverage will be extensive on CBC, cbcsports.ca and bold starting Tuesday, March 12 at 9 p.m. ET (9:30 p.m. NT) and continuing daily until March 17th.

I'll be spending tons of time with the social media maven of the figure skating world, the wonderful Pj Kwong! We hope to bring you closer to the athletes, the venue and the action than you've ever been before using social media.

You'll find a mix of updates, photos and videos in our live blog on cbcsports.ca. Starting Monday, we'll show you what's happening as fans and athletes start to arrive and prepare for the action in London, Ont.

As the competition gets going on Wednesday, we will be chatting live during the events on cbcsports.ca. You won't miss a moment whether it's on the ice or in the stands. We hope to be your eyes and ears on the ground in London and if you want to see something specific, just let us know.

Be sure to connect with us on Twitter @MonikaPlatek and @skatingpj and get involved in the conversation by using #CBCSkate. I already know that skating fans around the world will be tweeting about all the dazzling moments as they happen.

You'll also want to follow Scott Russell (@SportsWkndScott) who will be hosting daily with Brenda Irving (@SportsWkndBrend). For all the play-by-play action be sure to connect with four-time World Champion Kurt Browning (@KurtBrowning) and Olympic bronze medalist Tracy Wilson who will be providing analysis throughout the competition.

You'll see our photo albums grow on Facebook (Facebook.com/CBCSports) throughout the week and if you're in London, Ont. for the Championships, share your photos and updates with us!
