COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Rachael Flatt says she'll train with three coaches at three different rinks while she's going to school at Stanford.
The 2010 U.S. champion said Friday she'd work with Justin Dillon, Lynn Smith and Olympic champion ice dancer Sergei Ponomarenko at rinks in San Jose, Oakland and Redwood City, Calif. Flatt is in the process of moving from Colorado Springs, Colo., where she trained the last 10 years with Tom Zakrajsek, to Stanford. She begins classes in late September.
In addition to her U.S. title, Flatt was the 2008 world junior champion. She has competed at three senior world championships, finishing as high as fifth, and was seventh at the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.
