The U.S. delegation will be comprised of three athletes or teams in each discipline and will be named following the 2012 U.S. Figure Skating Championships from San Jose, Calif., at the end of January.
Recent Four Continents titlists include reigning Olympic champions Yu-Na Kim of Korea and Evan Lysacek, 2011 World champion ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White, and 2011 World champion Patrick Chan of Canada, who lives in Colorado Springs and trains at the Broadmoor Skating Club.
