Smucker’s Skating Spectacular
The event features 60 athletes from 12 countries, many who competed in Sochi and recent World Championships. The skaters earn points throughout the series in order to qualify for the ISU Grand Prix Figure Skating Final. With this event being the last, many of the skaters will be pushing hard in order to earn enough points to qualify for the Finals. This is guaranteed to be a stunning show for all who attend.
In past Skate America events, some of the titlists have included five-time World Champion and two-time Olympic medalist Michelle Kwan and Olympic champions Kristi Yamaguchi, Scott Hamiton, Evan Lysacek and Meryl Davis and Charlie White.
