Westwood figure skaters, Sofia and Cristina Hennessey and Joelle Young performed and participated at the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships held January 5-12!  The skaters are members of The Skating Club of Boston, which hosted the event here in Boston.  Sofia and Joelle  performed as part of the cast of The 100th Anniversary Opening Ceremonies Celebration at the
Championships held last Thursday at the TD Garden.   The opening ceremony paid tribute to “The Hero’s Journey” honoring the challenges and triumphs in becoming
a hero, much like that of today’s athlete. The show featured over 85 performers, including figure skaters, dancers and acrobats in a dramatic and illuminating
display of color, costumes and performance.   Joelle
and Sofia were also invited to be Award Presenters  throughout the Championships from which the Sochi Olympic team of figure skaters was selected.   At the most important moments of the Championships the presenters
carry the medals, trophies, pins and flowers to the podium for the presenting officials.  They participated in a total of five award presentations culminating with the Championship Men’s event Sunday at the TD Garden.   Cristina was selected to be a sweeper at the Championships, and was thrilled to be sweeping for the Championship Ladies’ event.
