More than 180 athletes will compete for U.S. titles at the 2024 Prevagen U.S. Figure Skating Championships Jan. 22-28 in Columbus, Ohio.
U.S. Championship titles will be on the line in the women’s, men’s, pairs and ice dance disciplines for championship and junior-level competitors, as well as for novice pairs and ice dance skaters.
Three of last year’s championship-level winners will return to defend their titles: Isabeau Levito, Ilia Malinin, and Madison Chock and Evan Bates. Reigning World Champions Chock and Bates are vying for their fifth U.S. championship, which would tie them for second-most in ice dance.
In the junior event, ice dancers Leah Neset and Artem Markelov are looking to make history and win their third straight junior crown. No athlete in any discipline has won three straight U.S. junior titles.
