The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) announced today that the Colorado Springs World Arena Ice Hall has been awarded official designation as a U.S. Olympic Training Site for Figure Skating. Through a partnership with the USOC, U.S. Figure Skating and the World Arena Ice Hall, the seven-year agreement recognizes the quality of the Ice Hall facility and will help ensure world-class training for elite athletes in the future.

“The City of Colorado Springs has had a lengthy and rewarding relationship with the USOC and U.S. Figure Skating. This recognition brings great honor to Colorado Springs and the World Arena Ice Hall. We’re proud of this world-class facility and the formal designation as a U.S. Olympic Training Site. This is another great way to celebrate the Spirit of the Springs,” Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach said.

Colorado Springs has been home to the USOC since 1978 and a center for international figure skating since the creation of the Broadmoor Skating Club in 1938. The City has hosted numerous international figure skating events, most recently the 2012 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and the 2010 World Synchronized Figure Skating Championships. It has presented five World Championships, two World Junior Championships, three ISU Skate Americas and six U.S. Championships.

Today’s announcement will enhance the strong relationship between the City and Olympic sports.

"We're thrilled to announce the World Arena Ice Hall as a new U.S. Olympic Training Site in partnership with U.S. Figure Skating," said USOC CEO Scott Blackmun. "Colorado Springs has a long and storied history of figure skating success and we appreciate the World Arena's continued support of America's elite athletes."

The designation of the World Arena Ice Hall as a U.S. Olympic Training Site benefits the entire community – the City of Colorado Springs, U.S. Figure Skating, resident coaching staff and World Arena Ice Hall – by continuing to draw world-class figure skaters to Colorado Springs.
 
The mission of U.S. Olympic Training Sites is to access additional resources, services and facilities for athletes and National Governing Bodies (NGBs) while providing an elite athlete training environment that positively impacts performance.
