will Worlds be moved from Tokyo?

I hope not. I’m planning to go and would love to be a tiny part of that nation getting back to normal.

… President Hidenori Futagi and the Japanese Federation have communicated their willingness to continue as planned the preparations and the running of these World Championships, which will take place October 7 – 16, 2011.

The FIG is sending its Directives and Appendices to all its affiliated federations, with the sincere hope that the World Championships can be held as foreseen without taking any risk for the health of the participants.

The FIG – in close cooperation with the Japan Gymnastics Association – shall follow the development of the nuclear catastrophe closely and shall reevaluate the situation by the end of May.

The FIG will reevaluate the situation by end of May

Note that FIG has kept the Suzuki Aerobic Gymnastics World Cup in Japan, same dates in June, but has switched the host city.
