NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The 2022 Figure Skating Championship starts at Bridgestone Arena downtown Nashville on Monday.

Some of the best figure skaters in the country are battling for their chance to get a spot on Team USA for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

Fans will attend and watch the skating from inside the arena.

Jason Brown, Vincent Zhou, and Nathan Chen are competing for the men. Chen is also known as "Quad King" because he is the first skater to land five types of quadruple jumps in competition and eight quads in a single competition.

Alysa Liu, and reigning U.S. Figure Skating champion Bradie Tennell are competing for the women. Tennell had a foot injury at the end of 2021 and was forced to withdraw from competitions as a result, but she is better and ready to compete.

While Music City did have to beat our several other cities to be the host city, this is not the first time this competition has been held here. It was also here back in 1997.
