Figure Skater Jeremy Abbott Completes Competition Career with Flawless Free Skate; Earns Team USA Three Spots for Next Worlds
JJJ is really going to miss seeing Jeremy Abbott on the competition rink next season.
The 28-year-old figure skater just completed his last competition ever during the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships in Saitama, Japan on Friday night (March 28) — and it was completely flawless!
Jeremy earned a personal best for his Muse program earning 166.68, totaling 246.35 for a 5th place finish! The placement, plus Max Aaron‘s finish in 8th, gives Team USA three spots at next year’s championship — something they’ve been trying to get back since 2011.
“I have so many emotions going through my head. Iâ€™m happy with how I skated and that was exactly what I wanted to do here,” Jeremy shared afterwards. “Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™ve been training for. Thatâ€™s the best Iâ€™ve ever skated that program in competition. Iâ€™m so proud and honored to do it in Japan. I had such a warm welcome.”
“Way to go @jeremyabbottpcf!!! So happy for you #flawless #worlds2014,” Gracie tweeted.
Ashley added with a pic from her and Marissa Castelli, “Stunning. @jeremyabbottpcf we are officially bawling. #Worlds2014.”
