This year’s Copper Cup was “amazing,” said Michelle Thomson, Media Relations for the Copper Cup and member of Utah Figure Skating. As with previous years, the Cup again hosted the first leg of a chain of competitions held across the United States for figure skaters.
“Utah Figure Skating Club has always hosted a competitive competition and this year was no exception,” she said. “Many local companies provided food for our volunteer staff and judges donated their time all year long to help these skaters meet their goals.”
This year’s version wasn’t any different, as fans filled the stands and watched the two-day affair full of figure skaters showcasing their best abilities.
The annual competition began Friday afternoon with preliminary, pre-bronze and pre-silver events. The entire afternoon was filled with junior and senior short and free dance routines, freeskating and adult preliminary dance routines for beginner, intermediate and advanced figure skaters.
