After a one-year absence from international competition, Miami University’s junior synchronized skating team represents the United States this weekend at the Leon Lurje Trophy in Gothenburg, Sweden. The RedHawks are one of two U.S. programs at the event among the 11-team field. There also are four teams from Finland and five teams from the host country Sweden.
Miami has had two weeks to prepare for the Leon Lurje Trophy, last competing at the Junior World Qualifier Jan. 3-4.
On Saturday, Miami’s junior team will showcase its short program, which is choreographed to the music “Anything Goes and “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better.” In Sunday’s free skate event, the RedHawks will perform their program themed “Dancing Dolls.”
Last year Miami’s senior team competed at the Leon Lurje Trophy. In their last international competition in 2011-12, the RedHawk junior team posted a seventh-place finish at the Mozart Cup in Salzburg, Austria.
