(Pittsburgh, PA) – Every four years, the Winter Olympics give us a chance to revel in the performances of our favorite athletes, as well as celebrate any medals they might have won. The U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team delivered against tough opposition winning a Bronze medal in the team competition, while Maia & Alex Shibutani, the brother-sister two-time National Ice Dance Champions and three-time World medalists also took home an Ice Dance Olympic Bronze. Despite narrowly missing out on the podium, two-time National Champion Nathan Chen delivered one of the Olympics greatest single performances with his record-breaking free skate that featured SIX quadruple jumps! Those Olympic memories will be at the epicenter of the 2018 Stars on Ice tour that will feature many of the skaters who medaled for the U.S. in the 2018 Winter Olympics. The Tour will visit Pittsburgh, PA on Friday, April 27 for a 7:30 PM performance at the PPG Paints Arena.
This year’s Stars on Ice tour will put American fans front and center to experience the best of U.S. Figure Skating. Joining Maia & Alex Shibutani as 2018 Olympic medalists on the 2018 tour will be U.S. Olympic Team Bronze Medalists; two-time and reigning National Champion Nathan Chen, U.S. Champion and overnight sensation Adam Rippon, 2018 U.S. Ladies Champion Bradie Tennell, and National Champion Mirai Nagasu, who made history by landing the first triple axel for an American woman at the Olympics.
