On May 9, Agnes Zawadzki, the 2012 U.S. bronze medalist, visited Omaha, Neb., in anticipation of the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. The event, being held for the first time in Nebraska, is slated for Jan. 20-27, 2013, at the CentuyLink Center. With Mother’s Day around the corner, Zawadzki gave several interviews to talk about her skating career, upcoming high school graduation and the U.S. Championships (hint, hint – tickets make great Mother’s Day gifts!).
Other highlights from the day included meeting local skaters from the Moylan Premier FSC, FSC of Omaha and Blade & Edge SC. The Moylan Iceplex graciously opened their doors and ice to Agnes and the skaters. Between interviews, Zawadzki was treated to a tour of Borsheims, one of the largest independent jewelers in the country, and a delicious lunch at Stokes, where she had her first-ever enchiladas.
A quick, but productive day that has Zawadzki, U.S. Figure Skating and the local organizing committee excited for a great event in January. It will be here before you know it!
Thank you to Agnes, and, of course, to everyone in Omaha who showed us such a wonderful time !
