Flatt shines at championships

Former Del Mar resident Rachael Flatt won the silver medal at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Cleveland on Jan. 18 to 25. Flatt, who now lives and trains in Colorado Springs, Colo., also competed at the Four Continents Championship in Vancouver, B.C., last week, where she finished in seventh place.

Flatt, 16, will now gear up for world championships in Los Angeles in March, with an eye on the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010.

Another local skater, Andrew Gonzales of Rancho Santa Fe, skated to an eighth place finish overall at the junior men’s division of the U.S. championships. Gonzales finished fourth in the short program event.
