Going to another country to skate is nothing new for Brittany Adams of Canton, Michigan or Jessica Feuerstein of Kissimmee, Florida. They are experienced junior world level skaters and our figure event medallists at the 2008 Junior World Roller Figure Skating Championship in Kaohsiung, Chinese Taipei.  Brittany is in her 4th season as a Team USA member, is coached by Vickie Hudson, and this is her second Silver Medal in the Compulsory Figure Event. Jessica Feuerstein is making her 2nd appearance in world competition and earning a Bronze Medal at this event is her first placement in international competition. Jessica is coached by Petra Dayney, April Jacobson and the late Ron Jellse.

Silver Medal dance team, Joey Rodriguez and Jessica Gaudy, just make you feel like dancing. They have both been competitive skaters for 8 years and this is their second world event medal as a team. They are coached by Joe and Marie Gaudy.

Fountain Valley Club member, Nicole Leonard, has proven that the addition of Junior and Senior World Class Solo Dance is great for the sport. Her high energy, exciting skating style made her the first Gold Medalist when the event was introduced at the 2007 World Championship in Australia. This season she has successfully defended her title and brought home the Gold again. She has been competing for 12 years and is currently coached by Bob Leonard, Bob LaBriola, and Chris Baerg.
