"We are pleased that figure skating fans hungry to watch skating action this summer will have a terrific opportunity to see some of the best skaters from the United States, Canada and other countries," said Bob Marchese, president of the Glacier Falls Figure Skating Club. "The Glacier Falls Summer Classic is one of the largest nonqualifying summer competitions in the United States."
More than 430 skaters will compete in all four disciplines at all levels during the event. In addition to on-demand video coverage, icenetwork.com will provide access to results and other event-related news.
As one of U.S. Figure Skating's "Summer Team USA Camp" competitions, many top competitors will use this event as an opportunity to debut their new programs in front of national and international judges and officials prior to participating in Grand Prix, Junior Grand Prix and senior B events this fall.
Expected to compete at Glacier Falls are 11 of the 12 men who finished fourth through 15th at last season's U.S. Figure Skating Championships, including Armin Mahbanoozadeh (fourth), Doug Razzano (fifth) and world junior bronze medalist Jason Brown (ninth). The senior ladies field is highlighted by the inclusion of 2008 U.S. champion Mirai Nagasu and 2011 U.S. junior champion Courtney Hicks.
