MPFSC was honored to give out 4 USFS Gold Medals at our Awards Banquet this year:
Jawaher Dabas: Senior Moves in the Field
Madison Morey: Senior Moves in the Field.
Madison also holds the distinction of being the youngest MPFSC skater to ever earn a USFS gold medal.
Patrick Ronan: Senior Free Skating & Gold Dance Test.
Patrick also holds the distinction of becoming MPFSC’s first ever Triple Gold Medalist, as he previously received a gold medal for Senior Moves in the Field.
Becoming a U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to the sport. In a typical year only 3 percent of all the USFS tests passed are at the gold or senior level. This is an amazing accomplishment and we are so proud of all of you!
