On December 9, 2020, U.S. Figure Skating released a statement announcing the cancellation of the 2021 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships and Challenge, a pivotal moment in the careers of many graduating high school and college seniors.
The first day of the Dr. Richard Porter Synchronized Skating Classic, the last U.S. competition of the year, kicked off on Friday evening. The competition started with the junior and senior short events at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The results are in for the California Cup which was an exciting start to the ISU Challenger Series. The energy in the crowd was ecstatic throughout the entire event. The gold medals went to Team Mystique and Helsinki Rockettes, both from Finland.
The first ISU Challenger Series competition, California Cup, is taking place in Irvine, California, USA. Teams from the United States, Canada, Finland, and Australia are a part of the inaugural event.
