Skate America wrapped up today after a drama filled weekend. There were many surprises, which made it that much more exciting to watch.
The men’s event is sure to be talked about for weeks to come as it had so many unexpected moments, whereas most could easily predict the winners of the ice dancing event. Not shocking at all, Meryl Davis and Charlie White excelled once again, winning four Skate America's in a row with two outstanding programs, bringing everyone to their feet.
The ladies also brought some suspense to the table as a young face entered the scene and captured the bronze medal, not too bad for a Russian 14-year-old. Mao Asada brought her triple axel to the event and Ashley Wagner her triple-triple combination, it was a great competition.
Not to mention the world record breaking score from the Russian pair, Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov. Skate America started the skating season off with a bang. The anticipation is rising as each competition brings skaters closer and closer to the Olympic Games.
