Freezer Aerial Figure Skating Challenge

to be held June 26th


Groundbreaking Jumps Challenge to Feature Top U.S. Skaters
at Broadmoor Open in Colorado Springs


Colorado Springs, CO – May 22, 2015 –  A new, fast-paced competition for figure skaters which highlights the challenges of jumps in figure skating will debut at Broadmoor Skating Club’s 2015 Broadmoor Open.  The Freezer Aerial Figure Skating Challenge is a groundbreaking event that will feature many of the top skaters in the United States who will compete for cash prizes totaling $30,000.  Over 20 skaters will compete on June 26th at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs, CO in an event sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating. 
The event will feature the highest-level jumps in competitive figure skating. It requires skaters to progress each round through increasingly difficult jumps, including quadruple jumps, triple axels, and jump combinations. In addition, it will utilize a unique scoring system that will grade skaters’ jumping ability with an increased Grade of Execution scale.
The most exciting event for the audience may be a back flip competition by skaters which is being sponsored by Michael Weiss, Olympian, three-time US champion, and first to land a back flip with a full twist in professional competition. Skaters are also encouraged to include back flip variations for better scoring opportunities.
“Skaters in the U.S. are among the best in the world and an event like the Freezer Aerial Skating Challenge encourages our skaters to take more risks and develop to the highest of their potential,” said Team USA and Olympic Coach Tom Zakrajsek. “Further, jumping is one of the most challenging and exciting of all the figure skating elements. Many times at major competitions around the world, the six-minute warm up for the freeskating provides some of the greatest thrills for the audience so creating an event which focuses on this aspect makes sense. We hope this will be the first of many future jumps challenges.”

Participants who have registered to compete in the event include Team USA skaters:

Additional Team USA members competing include National Junior medalists Aleksei Krasnozhon, Vivan Le, and Olivia Serafini.


Over 30 skaters from across the United States and around the world will also compete in the qualifying event.  The contingent of international skaters includes 2014 Olympians Liam Firus, 2014 Canadian national bronze medalist, and Brendan Kerry, 2012 Australian national champion as well as French skater Alexander Zahradnicek and Selena Zhao, 2015 Canadian junior champion.  U.S. competitors and medalists include Chase Belmontes, Anna Grace Davidson, Tessa Hong (2014 U.S. intermediate champion), Anastasia Kortjohn, Jimmy Ma, Kaitlyn Nguyen, Paige Rydberg, Ashley Shin, Eric Stinehart, Philip Warren and Luke West
Amongst these and other participants, Broadmoor Open figure skating competitors can earn the right to compete in the Aerial Figure Skating Challenge by placing in the top three at the Senior level or winning the Junior level. This preceding competition will take place on June 25th.
