Greensboro, NC, to Host 2015 Figure Skating Championships
8 May, 2014
The 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, January 18-28, 2015, will feature a unique and attractive layout for the approximately 350 skaters expected to compete.
All events will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex with practice ice for the athletes adjacent to the competition ice.
Already, the event has a strong history that makes the 2015 version even more to look forward to. Held January 22-30, 2011, the 2011 AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships brought 250 top U.S. skaters and over 160,000 attendees to Greensboro and was hailed as the largest event in North Carolina that year. Champions were crowned in the novice, junior, and senior divisions in men, ladies, pairs and ice dance. Senior level champions included Alissa Czisny, Ryan Bradley, Caitlin Yankowskas & John Coughlin and Meryl Davis & Charlie White.
The 2011 U.S. Championships were the first in the almost 100-year history of the event to hold the three major championship elements—Competition, Practice, and FanFest—in one building, under one roof. This highly convenient venue configuration drew rave reviews from athletes and fans alike and will be repeated, and improved upon, in 2015.
