The 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Greensboro NC | Official Website

I'm seeing signs and advertisements for this event all over town so it has me curious. Has anyone here been to the event before? Is it anything worth checking out for those of us who aren't typically figure skating fans?

It brought a lot of national exposure to greensboro when it was held here in 2011. It was televised nationally on nbc and there were some great aerial shots of downtown panning all the way to the coliseum .

We will be attending two days next week. While not a follower of the sport I thought it would be cool to see it live.

The U.S. Figure Skating Championships has really put the city on the map and is directly responsible for Greensboro landing other national sporting events at the coliseum complex. Greensboro has proven it can compete with cities such as Boston for events such as this. Since first hosting the figure skating championships in 2011, Greensboro hosted last year’s Nastia Liukin Cup and American Cup international meet and landed this year’s USA Gymnastics Championships, which draw about 1,600 competitors in trampoline and tumbling, rhythmic gymnastics and acrobatic gymnastics. The city has landed a number of national swimming championships at the Greensboro Aquatic Center. The Greensboro Coliseum Complex is a very unique venue being able to host a number of events under one roof.

Can Greensboro go even further?

He’s kept Greensboro in the conversation, asking: ‘What else can we do?’ Will it be another championship? Will it be a Worlds? It’s a conversation that’s continued.”

We watched the women's short on Thurs and freestyle tonight. It really was an experience. Thursday's crowd was light with about half the seating occupied. Tonight's crowd was better as the curtains were raised for upper level seating on the sides.
