U.S. Figure Skating today released the athletes who will compete at the 2021 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships set for The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas from January 12-21.
Athletes qualified for the U.S. Championships by receiving byes, or qualifying through the U.S. Figure Skating Championship Series presented by Toyota. Announced in August as an alternative to U.S. Figure Skating’s traditional qualifying season, the 2021 U.S. Championship Series presented by Toyota was scheduled to begin the week of Nov. 9 in Norwood, Mass.; Blaine, Minn.; and Spokane, Wash. Due to COVID-19, the competition transitioned to a virtual format. Byes were awarded to senior athletes who placed in the top-five in the same event at the 2020 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships per the U.S. Figure Skating Rulebook, or finished in the top-four in U.S. Figure Skating’s International Selection Pool (ISP) Points Challenge.
