USOC HQ City to Roll Out Red Carpet for Olympic Sport

In 1977, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) selected Colorado Springs, CO as its national headquarters and established the Olympic Training Center on 35 acres that was formerly known as Ent Air Force Base. The Olympic Training Center, located just a few miles east of downtown Colorado Springs, is home to hundreds of athletes who live and train at the facility on a permanent or temporary basis.

The next elite level event to be held in Colorado Springs is the 2014 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships which will take place February 26 – March 1, 2014. In addition to being the primary selection event for the World Synchronized Skating Championships, the U.S. Synchronized Championships crowns the U.S. champions at the juvenile, intermediate, novice, junior, senior, collegiate, adult and masters levels.

The 2014 event, hosted by the Broadmoor Skating Club, will be held at the Colorado Springs World Arena. Together the Broadmoor Skating Club, U.S. Figure Skating, world-renowned coaches and the World Arena Ice Hall have a history of producing U.S. champions such as Rachael Flatt and Ryan Bradley.
