Hello from Omaha! We’ve seen some wonderful skating so far this week at the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, and with three more days of competition, we’re sure to see a lot more!

Some events have already wrapped up. Congrats to Riedell’s Vincent Zhou, who earned the gold medal in junior men’s. Vincent received the second-highest score in competition history for a junior man. Also, great job to Riedell skater Katia Shpilband for placing 12th in junior ladies. And Riedell junior pair skaters Madeline Aaron & Max Settlage finished third.
