7 Must-Know Facts About U.S. Olympic Figure Skater Bradie Tennell

If you don’t know who Bradie Tennell is, that might be because she only recently stepped into the public eye as one of three members of the U.S. Women's Olympic Figure Skating Team. While the 20-year-old American has been gracing the ice with her presence for years, this year has been a turning point for her career. On January 5, 2018, Bradie won her first U.S. Figure Skating National Title. She took first place in the short program (the first of two phases in figure skating competitions), and then wowed in the long program as well—she nailed her first jump combination of a triple lutz into a triple toe, and every combination following. The Illinois native glided across the ice effortlessly, and ultimately landed a technical score of 77.30, and a total score of 219.51. Her top marks were enough to surpass fellow skaters Ashley Wagner, Mirai Nagasu, and Karen Chen, naming Bradie the 2018 U.S. national champ. Not only was this her first national title, but it also put her on the map to qualify for the Olympics. And the following morning, Bradie was selected to compete in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Considering we’ll be seeing a lot more of this young skater (who will be turning 20 before the Olympics—her birthday is January 31), we're all curious to know a little more about her. Here’s the lowdown on Bradie Tennell, U.S. figure skating’s Cinderella story. Bradie was born in suburban Illinois to a single mother (who is a registered nurse). She has two younger brothers, Shane and Austin, who both also spend time on the ice as hockey players, reports NBC. Her family is very supportive—her brothers currently have a GoFundMe campaign to help them raise enough money to be able to travel to South Korea next month to watch their sister compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics. (Check it out here and donate if you'd like.) They are, after all, Bradie’s number-one fans! Bradie began skating at just 2 years old, and told International Figure Skating Magazine she isn't sure how she even learned about the sport. Nevertheless, she recalls begging her mom to take her skating. Her mom found the nearest rink, and the rest was history.  "I always loved Cinderella since I was 2 years old," Bradie told Ice Network.  "At 3, my mom made me a Halloween costume, a Cinderella dress. When the movie came out I probably watched it 10 times. It never gets old. I actually watched it on the plane here." Now, many are calling Bradie's rise to ice skating success her own "Cinderella story." Just weeks ago, no one knew her name, and now she's headed to the Olympics.  What's even more fitting, she won the title of U.S Figure Skating Women's Champion while skating to a “Cinderella” medley from the 2015 Patrick Doyle soundtrack, and wearing an icy blue dress. Bradie has suffered from back injuries for a lot of her career, reports IFS. In her 2014-15 season, she fractured both sides of her ...
