Professional Skater: Kimmie Meissner, Olympian, 2006 World Champion, 2007 Four Continents Champion, 2007 US National Champion

Kimmie began skating at the age of 6.  She first came into contact with skating while visiting the local rink to watch her brothers play hockey.  Kimmie harnessed her skills by participating in the U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills Program in her hometown.   During the 2003-2004 season Kimmie jump-started her junior-level career with a second-place finish at the Junior Grand Prix in Sofia.  She was fifth after the short program but jumped up to win the silver with a great free skate.  After that, she won her first Junior Grand Prix gold and her first international gold medal at the Junior Grand Prix event in Slovenia.  Kimmie then qualified for the Junior Grand Prix Final and finished fifth.  In 2004, Kimmie won Gold at the State Farm U.S. Junior Championships, where she landed six triples.  She followed up that victory with an impressive second place finish at the World Junior Championships.

Professional Skater: Ryan Bradley, United States Champion

Ryan Bradley thought his competitive skating career had come to a close back in March 2010 when an injured foot landed him in 18th place at the World Championships in Torino. A longtime competitor and a natural showman, Ryan decided maybe it was time to entertain audiences instead of judges. So he took some time off from competitive training, performed in several shows around the country and overall, he felt pretty good. But inside, he knew he wasn’t finished. Not yet. He didn’t reach his ultimate goal of competing in the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, finishing fourth at the 2010 U.S. Championships --- the top three men made the U.S. Olympic team --- but that didn’t mean he was finished.His fans encouraged him to continue competing, too, sending him emails and messages on Twitter on Facebook persuading with him to give his competitive skating career one more shot. Eventually, he decided to come back. And, man, is he ever happy he did. Read more about Ryan HERE.

Honored Guest in Attendance:
Tom Rothrock, Olympian

Tom Rothrock grew up in Cashmere, Wash., a few miles outside of Wenatchee. An athletic kid, he started skiing with his father and brother at nearby Mission Ridge around the age of 5. By 7, he'd entered his first competition, the Mighty Might at Mission Ridge, placing third in the event. About 10 years later, he found inspiration in Tommy Moe, the American alpine skier who, in 1994, brought home two gold medals from the Olympics in Lillehammer. That same year, as a sophomore in high school, he won his first competition, becoming a Junior Olympic champion. By the end of high school, Rothrock's skiing success had turned so many heads that he was offered a full-ride scholarship to the University of Utah. He turned it down. Rothrock opted for world travel and the stiffer competition, joining the U.S. Ski Team in 1997, at the age of 19. He hasn't looked back since. At 21, he got his start on the World Cup circuit, running 20 to 30 races a year in the United States, Austria, Germany, Italy, France and elsewhere. During the 2002 season, he came in 12th in the World Championships and 15th at the Salt Lake City Olympics. Last season, he finished 9th in the Schladming, Kitzbuehl and Park City World Cup competitions. He finished 6th at the Sestriere World Cup.
