Gracie Gold, Adam Rippon, Maia & Alex Shibutani Lead US Team To Worlds Competition in Boston

The 2016 U.S. National Figure Skating team for the upcoming Worlds competition is looking insanely good!

The figure skaters, who competed this past weekend at the 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in St. Paul, Minnesota and are headed to Boston for the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships are: Gracie Gold, Polina Edmunds, Ashley Wagner (ladies), Adam Rippon, Max Aaron, Nathan Chen (men), Tarah Kayne and Danny O’Shea and Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim (pairs), Maia and Alex Shibutani, Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, and Madison Chock and Evan Bates (ice dance).

“The international scene is so strong and it’s getting stronger every single year and I think that it is never a question of whether or not the U.S. ladies are capable of being on that podium; it’s more a question of when we’re going to step up to that challenge,” Ashley shared about the particularly competitive ladies competition.

She added, “This year is going to be about going out there and nailing those triple-triple combinations, nailing those technical marks, performing the hell out of those programs. That is what’s going to get us onto the world podium, and that is a lot to ask of one person, but I think we’re definitely capable of putting that out.”

The 2016 World Figure Skating Championships will be held from March 28th to April 3rd.

Of course I’ve never had a chance to be in this position before, so I’m really excited and happy that I’m finally here. But really, I know that it comes down to who skates the best on the ice, and I’m glad what I put down today was my best and that I was rewarded for it.”

In the pairs competition, Tarah Kayne and Danny O’Shea topped the leaderboard with 69.61, ahead of defending champs Alexa Scimeca and Christopher Knierim and Marissa Castelli and Mervyn Tran in third.
