The U.S. Figure Skating Championships begin this weekend in Greensboro. This same event came to the city four years ago.
Bob Dunlop, Senior Director of Events for US Figure Skating, says that now is a good time for the skaters and fans to come back to North Carolina:
"[It's the] start of a new Olympic cycle for us. New faces - some of the people who competed in '11 are gone from the sport. So, a great re-start for us."
Competitors will skate in singles, pairs and ice dancing divisions.
The next winter Olympic games are scheduled to take place in PeyongChang South Korea in 2018.
