CLEVELAND, Ohio – Two Northern Virginia athletes competing at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships, Ashley Wagner of Alexandria and Tommy Steenberg of Annandale, both recovered from poor short programs to rise up through the ranks in the final standings with strong free skate efforts last weekend.
Now fully healed from an injury suffered last July, Tommy Steenberg is focused on being at his best for the upcoming U.S. Figure Skating Championships, taking place Jan. 18 – 25 in Cleveland, Ohio.
It’s been a hectic and productive autumn for figure skater Armin Mahbanoozadeh of Fairfax. He placed second at an international junior competition in Courchevel, France, followed by gold at an event in Madrid, Spain.
To spend or not to spend? That is the question facing the Nationals’ front office as the baseball Hot Stove season begins.
