Rachael Flatt joins Figure Skaters Online

Rachael FlattWith the 2009 U.S. Championships in Cleveland, Ohio, less than a week away, World Junior Champion Rachael Flatt is proud to open her official Web site in cooperation with Figure Skaters Online. The site is located at www.RachaelFlatt.net.

Flatt, who recently formed partnerships with MAC Cosmetics and Reading is Fundamental, is in the midst of a stellar season that includes a second place showing at Cup of Russia and a fourth place Grand Prix debut at Skate America. She starts her quest for her first senior national title Jan. 22.

The Del Mar, Calif., native was the runner-up at last year’s U.S. Championships. Too young to compete at the 2008 World Championships, she instead led an American sweep of the ladies medals at the 2008 World Junior Championship.

She trains in Colorado Springs, Colo., at the World Arena with an extensive coaching team that includes Tom Zakrajsek and Becky Calvin. Flatt, who belongs to the Broadmoor Skating Club, also works with choreographer Lori Nichol.

Fans of Flatt can visit her Web site at www.RachaelFlatt.net. The site includes a collection of personal photos as well as a contact page, where fans can e-mail Flatt or leave a message in her guestbook.
