Congrats to Kelly Gulbrandson, First NSS Skater to Pass a Gold U.S. Figure Skating Test!

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 12:30pm

Earlier this week, staff member Kelly Gulbrandson became NSS’s first skater to pass a Gold U.S. Figure Skating test. Kelly tested her Adult Gold Moves in the Field Test, the highest test of its kind attainable in the U.S. Figure Skating structure. A panel of judges evaluated her patterns for qualities such as power, extension, and edge quality, and she received passing scores from all three judges. Kelly trains year-round at the St. Paul Figure Skating Club with NSS director and coach Carey Tinkelenberg.
