The winter olympic games of 2010 in Vancouver, BC will be here before you know it! This weekend's Skate America competition is just one of the many competitions that ice skaters are using to set their stage for 2010. Skate America kicks off today with competition going on through Sunday.
The ladies field consists of U.S. skaters Mirai Nagasu (reigning U.S. champion and World Junior bronze medalist), Rachael Flatt (reigning World Junior champion) and Kimmie Meissner (2006 World Champion and winner Skate America 2007).
Additionally, it is rumored that Japanese skater, Miki Ando, has been landing “quads” during the practice sessions. There are an additional 8 skaters in the ladies program which should make for an exciting competition all the way around.
Which Olympic stars will begin to emerge this weekend? Who do you think will be crowned champion at Skate America this year?
