Photos from 2005 Smart Ones Skate America Media Day
(10/17/05) 2005 World ice dancing silver medalists Tanith Belbin & Ben Agosto took some time from their training to fly into Atlantic City, N.J., for a media day and kids' clinic promoting the upcoming Smart Ones Skate America. In just 24 hours, Belbin and Agosto did two TV appearances, three radio interviews and three newspaper interviews. They conducted an on-ice skating clinic with local figure skating club kids as well as the Boys and Girls Club of America members, who will take part in the Skate America exhibition on Sunday, Oct. 23. Before the clinic, Belbin and Agosto showed the kids a section of their free dance and then broke the preformance down with a "How did they do that?" insight into steps, lifts and spins.
Belbin and Agosto will return to Atlantic City on Tuesday, Oct. 18, in an attempt to secure their third straight title at Skate America. The event takes place Oct. 20-23 at the historic Boardwalk Hall. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster and the Boardwalk Hall box office.
