Marissa Castelli & Simon Shnapir: Headed to Sochi Olympics; 1st at U.S. Nationals!

Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir react to their scores after their free skate during the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships held at TD Garden on Saturday night (January 11) in Boston, Mass.

The champion pairs skaters also secured a spot on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics Figure Skating Team, along with fellow pairs Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay.

“WE’RE GOING TO THE OLYMPICS! It just feels so great to say it! @SimonShnapir ???????? #RoadToSochi #TeamUSA #Boston2014,” Marissa tweeted.

“We’re a little disappointed with ourselves today,” Marissa shared afterwards. “I felt I could have brought some more power and energy. I’ve totally been doing that quad[ruple salchow jump] all week.”
