The US Figure Skating Championships are coming to Cleveland next week. The competition, held annually since 1914, is the most prestigious event in US figure skating and draws around 250 skaters in three classes: Novice, Junior, and Senior competing in dance, pairs, mens, and women’s events.
The US Figure Skating Championships are a great place to get an early look at up-and-coming champions as well as see who will be competing in Vancouver next February. Contenders include some of the top skaters in the country including Rachael Flatt, Emily Hughes, Kimmie Meissner, Mira Nagasu and Caroline Zhang.
Can’t wait for the event? Check out rehearsals for the opening ceremonies featuring 55 of the top skaters in the Cleveland area.
