Barbara Wagner has judged both the 2016 World Figure Championship & Festival and the 2017 World Figure & Fancy Skating Championships & Festival.

In 2017, she accepted the honor on behalf of the World Figure Sport Society to induct Olympic Champion Dorothy Hamill as a new World Figure Sport's Hall of Fame Member.
Barbara Wagner and Bob Paul from Canada changed the world of pair figure skating with their technical proficiency, consistency and innovation. Barbara and Bob both grew up in Toronto, Canada and were teamed up by their coach Sheldon Galbraith (who also coached Barbara Ann Scott to her Olympic Gold Medal, and Donald Jackson to his World title in Prague in 1962). Wagner and Paul were the first World and Olympic Pair Champions to individually pass the gold figure, free skating and gold pair tests. They also set the trend for significant height difference between partners. Barbara Wagner and Bob Paul won 5 Canadian National titles, 2 North American titles, 4 World titles and the Olympic Gold in 1960.
The World Figure Championship & Figure Festival is sanctioned/endorsed by the World Figure Sport Society (WFS) and is the world organization for Figure & Fancy Skating.
