Team Braemar's junior synchronized skating team is on its way to a third straight national title

The team won first place at the 2014 Midwestern Junior Team sectional championship on Jan. 25. 

The Twin Cities skaters have won the national championship in 2013, 2012, 2010 and 2009. In 2011, the team took the silver medal. They have also represented the U.S. Figure Skating Association for seven consecutive years now, taking part in international competitions as Team USA. 

Team Braemar is part of the Edina-based Braemar-City of Lakes Figure Skating Club and practices at Braemar Ice Arena in southwest Edina.

For the unfamiliar, synchronized team skating typically sees between eight and 20 skaters on the ice, performing a routine together. It uses the same judging system as other figure skating disciplines, with teams performing a free skate routine as well as a short program consisting of required elements. 

Team Braemar was the only synchronized skating team from Minnesota to qualify for the National Championships in 2013.

Additional information on the team can be found at www.braemarfsc.org.
