Olympic dream: Addison native Scimeca eyes 2014 Winter Games after top result at worlds
Scimeca and partner Chris Knierim were ninth in first worlds appearance
Six weeks ago, Alexa Scimeca and her partner Chris Knierim weren’t sure if they would even be competing at worlds.
After taking ninth and finishing as the top American pair at the 2013 ISU World Figure Skating Championships on March 15, Scimeca and Knierim are now among the favorites to qualify for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Scimeca, who was born in Addison and graduated from Addison Trail High School, and Knierim qualified for worlds after a second-place finish at the 2013 U.S. Championships. The top two U.S. pairs qualify for worlds, but it wasn’t that simple this time.
