They did it! McLaughlin and Brubaker pulled up from 4th to capture the silver medal at the NHK Trophy and have clinched a spot at the Grand Prix Final.
Can I tell you, the last few years U.S. Pair Skating has been kind of a wash. But this season new life has been blown into our program. Exciting new teams, greatly improved teams, teams landing Quad Salchows, teams medaling and making it to the Grand Prix Final, past champions, new champions, crowd favorites, what a time for U.S. Pair Skating!
Once again, congratulations to Keauna and Rockne for qualifying to Torino.
