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 triple Lutz. 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.
