National Tour to be Highlighted by Performances from U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Bronze Medalist Nathan Chen and Ice Dance Bronze Medalists Maia & Alex Shibutani
Every four years, the Winter Olympics give us a chance to revel in the performances of our favorite athletes, as well as celebrate any medals they may have won. The U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team delivered against tough opposition winning a bronze medal in the team competition, while Maia & Alex Shibutani, the brother-sister two-time U.S. Ice Dance champions and three-time World medalists, also took home an Ice Dance Olympic bronze. Despite narrowly missing out on the podium, two-time National Champion Nathan Chen delivered one of the Olympics’ greatest single performances with his record-breaking free skate that featured six quadruple jumps. Those Olympic memories will be at the epicenter of the 2018 Stars on Ice tour featuring many of the skaters who medaled for the U.S. in the 2018 Winter Olympics. The 2018 Olympics may be over, but the dream of seeing your favorite skaters is very much alivewhen the tour visits Orlando’s Amway Center on Saturday, April 7. Tickets are on sale now.
This year’s Stars on Ice tour puts American fans front and center to experience the best of U.S. Figure Skating. Joining Nathan Chen and Maia & Alex Shibutani on the 2018 tour will be U.S. Champion and overnight sensation Adam Rippon, 2018 U.S. Ladies Champion Bradie Tennell, and National Champion Mirai Nagasu, who made history by landing the first triple axel for an American woman at the Olympics.
The 2018 Stars on Ice tour also presents several other skating luminaries, including U.S. Olympic royalty, Ice Dance Gold Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White; three-time National Champion and 2016 World Silver Medalist Ashley Wagner; and National Champion and huge crowd favorite, Jason Brown. Also featured on this year’s tour will be three other members of the 2018 U.S. Olympic Figure Skating team, 2017 U.S. Ladies Champion Karen Chen, 2018 National Ice Dance Champions Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue.
