Olympic Center welcomes Winter Ice Spectacular back to Lake Placid on Sunday


LAKE PLACID – The Olympic Center staff is excited to host the Winter Ice Spectacular for its second year.
This must-see ice skating performance brings together some of the world’s most popular and accomplished figure skaters into one action-packed show.
This year’s spectacle will take place at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
About the performers: 
* Mirai Nagasu is a U.S. champion and 2010 Olympian. She is the 2011 Four Continents bronze medalist, a two-time medalist at the World Junior Championships and a four-time U.S. national medalist.
In 2008, Nagasu became the youngest woman since Tara Lipinski in 1997 to win the U.S. senior ladies title and the second young-est in history.
* Ryan Bradley is a U.S. champion and world competitor. As a cast member of Stars on Ice, he is well-known for his entertaining performances and his dazzling backflips. Bradley is the 2008 Skate Canada International silver med-alist, the 2009 Skate America bronze medalist, the 2011 U.S. national champion and a three-time U.S. Collegiate champion. 
* Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre are U.S. medalists as well as world competitors. The duo won the bronze medal at the 2008 U.S. National Championships and was chosen to represent the Uni-ted States at the 2008 Four Continents, where they finished in third. Fans will recognize them from “Glee” and “America’s Got Talent.” 
* Ashley Cain began competing on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series in 2011 and won silver on the junior level at the 2012 U.S. Championships. When Cain won the bronze medal at the 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy, it was her first career international medal. Cain is also very comfortable skating in front of fans in the Olympic center. Her dad, Peter Cain, competed in pairs during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games.
