Over the weekend, Riedell skaters at every level competed around the world. At the Japan Open, 2009 U.S. National Champion, Jeremy Abbott, finished 3rd individually, while Joannie Rochette’s strong performance lead her to a first place finish! The Japan Open consisted of teams representing North America, Europe and Japan competing against each other. Jeremy and Joannie skated for Team North America with Beatrisa Liang and Jeffery Buttle. Their strong individual performances lead the North American team to a 2nd place finish behind Team Europe.

On the other side of the world, reigning U.S. Novice Champion, Kiri Baga, gave a stunning performance at her first ISU Junior Grand Prix in Dresden, Germany. Kiri skated her way to a first place finish in her international debut!

Congratulations to all of the Riedell skaters!
