2018 STARS ON ICE TOUR WILL KEEP OLYMPIC FLAME BURNING WITH MEDAL HOPEFULS
Every four years, the Winter Olympics not only give us a chance to celebrate and revel in our favorite athletes, but also to discover some incredible new breakout stars. Ardent fans of figure skating have become familiar with two-time and reigning National Champion Nathan Chen, but by the time the 2018 Winter Olympic Games are over, the world will be as well. Chen, the first skater to land five different quadruple jumps during a single program in competition, will be a key member of an immensely talented U.S. Figure Skating Team looking to grab Gold at the Olympics. He will also be the centerpiece of the 2018 Stars on Ice tour that will feature current National Champions, and many of the skaters vying for medals for the U.S. in the 2018 Winter Olympics. The Tour will visit 22 cities nationwide beginning in Fort Myers, FL on Friday, April 6th, and wrapping up in Portland, OR on Sunday, May 20th.
