The 2021 Peggy Fleming Trophy returns as a virtual, streamed event.
Entries limited to 18 U.S. Senior Level Men and Ladies
The fourth annual event will be held during the summer of 2021 in collaboration with the Broadmoor Skating Club.
This is the first announcement and is dated January 28, 2021. Check back often for important updates (hint–more prize money opportunities) and follow peggyfleming.com on social media.
The focus of the event is the skater’s ability to artistically express and present a complete composition while demonstrating superb technical skills. The music, creativity and overall performance qualities are the emphasis of the competition and all skating elements are assessed from an artistic point of view.
Last year’s event was a huge success in support of our skaters who faced so many challenges with the eruption of the pandemic. This historic, first of its kind, virtual event provided the skaters with the opportunity to perform with a worldwide viewing audience.
There is NO entry fee. Entry forms are not yet available but will be soon.
The event is open to 18 active Senior level Men and Ladies competing together and against each other for the Trophy. Each skater will record their 3:30 minute performance at their home ice arena and then digitally upload it for judging by a world class group of judges and supporting officials.
There are nine technical elements which have fixed base scoring values and which will receive Grade of Execution (GOE) marks based on the artistic execution of the element in relationship to the program as a whole.
The prize money for a podium finish is:
- 1st place: $3000
- 2nd place: $2000
- 3rd place: $1000
Note–additional prizes are under development.
The winner’s name will be added to the side of the special sculpture commissioned by Peggy and donated to the Broadmoor Skating Club to celebrate the annual event.
The nine technical elements are the following:
- 4 jump elements
- 3 spin elements
- 1 step sequence
- 1 signature move
Unique among the required elements is the “signature move,” which encourages each skater to present an iconic, or new and original, jump, move or spin tailored to each skater’s own personality, creativity and imagination. See more details here.
The 2021 event will showcase a talented field of competitors and their inspiring programs. Important updates will be posted on our social media pages and peggyfleming.com.
