Countdown to 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships

Written By: Riedell | December 20, 2012

It’s hard not to feel the excitement buzzing around figure skating—we’re only one month away from the start of the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, which take place Jan. 19-27 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Riedell is proud to have many competitors hitting the ice in our figure skates. Watch out for last year’s Novice Champ, Vincent Zhou, who will be skating as a junior this year. And Riedell’s Kiri Baga will be making two appearances. She’ll be competing in both senior ladies and senior pairs. How’s that for determination?

In addition to watching the talented skaters compete, one of our favorite parts of Nationals is seeing you! We love connecting with skaters and coaches from all over the country, so for you lucky fans and skaters who are attending, stop by our booth to say hello—we’ll be in the FanFest Vendor Village. Grab a copy of our 2013 Skate Catalog and snap a pic to share with us on Facebook and Twitter!

We’re sure to see some wonderful performances this year and we wish our Riedell skaters the best of luck at Nationals 2013!

Here’s a list of our Riedell skaters who will be competing in Omaha:


1. Kiri Baga

2. Katia Shpilband (Junior)
