'98 FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS TO BE IN PHILADELPHIA
Published October 11, 1994
Philadelphia beat out Boston and was awarded the 1998 U.S. Figure Staking Championships. The event will be held one month before the Winter Games in Nagano, and will determine the US Olympic Figure Skating team. The event will be held at the CoreStates Spectrum (Sally Pollack, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 10/9). Boston lost by only one vote, 20-19. Larry Moulter, President of the New Boston Garden Corp., said two things worked against them: Providence has the event in '95, and Philadelphia's recent rejections by the USFSA (Kevin Paul Dupont, BOSTON GLOBE, 10/9). ALSO: Minneapolis is the U.S.'s bid city for the '98 World Figure Skating Championships. Nashville will be the site of the '97 U.S. Championships (THE DAILY).
