Edina, MN – Today, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton proclaimed Saturday, April 28, 2012, to be Team Braemar Synchronized Skating Day.

Team Braemar, the 2012 U.S. junior synchronized skating champions, represented the United States Figure Skating Association as Team USA at the 2012 Junior World Challenge Cup (JWCC) March 16-17 in Gothenburg, Sweden and earned an impressive fourth place. The JWCC is sanctioned by the International Skating Union and is comprised of elite teams from around the world. This was Team Braemar’s fourth consecutive trip to the prestigious competition.

Coached by Pam May and Toni Swiggum and skating to a number titled “Blah Blah Blah Blah, Cha Cha Cha”, the team performed their short program to a crowd packed with fans from the U.S.. Said Co-Captain Breanna Hegseth, “Taking the ice was an indescribable feeling. The USA pride in the stands was unbelievable! Our short program was one of the best programs we skated all season!” The judges agreed, awarding the team a score of 49.94 and placing them in 3rd place after the short program.

The public has the opportunity to watch Team Braemar skate their award-winning programs at the annual Spring Ice Show, which takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 at Braemar Ice Arena. Tickets will be available at the Braemar Ice Arena box office. The cost is $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and students.
