Four Continents figure skating championships returning to US
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The ISU Four Continents figure skating championships are returning to the U.S. for the first time in seven years.
The meet is scheduled for Feb. 7-10 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California, home to the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks.
The competition in singles, pairs and ice dancing features skaters from the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania.
The U.S. team will be made up of three skaters or teams in each discipline and will be named after the U.S. nationals in Detroit on Jan. 19-27.
Last year, Americans Tarah Kayne and Danny O’Shea won the pairs title and Ashley Cain and Timothy LeDuc earned silver in Taipei. Americans Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker won the ice dance title. Jason Brown won bronze in the men’s competition.
The event was last held in the U.S. in 2012 at Colorado Springs, Colorado. The U.S. also hosted in 2006, 2007 and 2011.
