Caydee Denney and John Coughlin
are both U.S. pair figure skating champions. Denny won the U.S. pair skating title in 2010 with Jeremy Barrett. Coughlin won the same title in 2011 with Caitlin Yankowskas.
On July 14, 2001 Denney and Coughlin debuted their short program at the 2011 Summer Liberty Competition Aston, Pennsylvania. This was the pair's first competition performance.
In this video, Denney and Coughlin, skating to "East of Eden," do a spectacular triple twist lift
. Also, the pair successfully landed side-by-side triple toe loops
and a throw
. They scored a Level 4 on their step sequence
This performance shows that putting two champions together can "create magic" in a very short period of time. The team had only been together for a little over two months when they did this short program at the Liberty Summer Competition in Aston, Pennsylvania.
