Figure Skating Championships-U.S.Nationals summary
Thank you, Spokane! It was awesome! These are the first words that come to mind after the US Nationals! Many wonderful moments gave us American skaters. It was also a real struggle for the tickets to the Olympics. Really great holiday of skating for everyone.The US National Championships it’s something special.
Jeremy Abbott-well made men’s skating. Great program and the excellent music. His partners on the national team are Evan Lysacek and Johnny Weir, who also showed a high level of skating and deservedly join the National team.
Caydee Denney / Jeremy Barrett are the strongest in the pair skating. Also need to note the growth of the skating level in pairs.
A serious struggle was between Meryl Davis / Charlie White, and Tanith Belbin / Benjamin Agosto. Both couples are one of the best in the world. But Davis / White, with their superior technique, artistry and great music took the Champions title.
The culmination of this wonderful tournament was the ladies skating. I think many supporters breathlessly followed every performance. Ashley Wagner, who works great on the ice all the season, skated in his brilliant style was the third.Mirai Nagasu won the second place as skated very well in both programms. Famous Sasha Cohen, who returned after a long pause was one of the leaders of the short program, but the outcome was not included in the prize-winners .Rachael Flatt absolutely deservedly won a championship title.Amazing combination of technique, artistry and talent-it’s about her. Also need to say about the great potential of Christina Gao, which I think will progress. Also I think Alissa Czisny has just temporary difficulties.
In general, the U.S. National Championships showed how entertaining, very interesting, totally unpredictable, popular and strong it is.
Watch all great performances of the U.S.Nationals
