AKCK Bronze Medalists...

February 2018 - Chris and Alexa Knierim played a key role in the Americans claiming the bronze medal in the Figure Skating Team Event. The Knierim's (AKCK) skated a strong short program, which moved the USA from fifth to second overall. Two days later, they landed the vaunted quad twist--to the delight of the crowd--and helped the U.S. hold off Italy for the team bronze. AKCK became the first married couple to medal for the U.S. in more than 20 years!
