Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier, national silver medalists and world championship team members, stopped by the Skatium Ice Arena for a 'meet and greet' today, signing autographs for 240 figure skaters from Central and Northern Illinois, and Southern Wisconsin. In addition, Susie Wynn, former Olympian and television figure skating commentator, choreographed two numbers for two groups of 120 young skaters (each).
After the regional skating practice, Denney & Frazier helped coach Skatium figure skating classes (another 250 skaters), and then skated a short exhibition before signing autographs for the second group.
Haven and Brandon will be competing their short program at Skate America on Friday, Oct. 21 at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates. Skate America is one of six Grand Prix competitions held throughout the world for elite skaters. The young regional skaters in the photo (above) will be performing a number at the Sears Center on Oct. 23.
