Figure skater Alex Wellman competed today at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston. The 13-year old Bloomington native placed 10th in the juvenile free skate event, with a score of 41.54. Wellman is a student at Bloomington Junior High. His coach Madalyn Brook says the young man will take a short break after returning to the Twin Cities, before resuming training for the next season. The Figure Skating Championships continue into this weekend, where the senior skaters will compete for a chance to be on the U.S. Olympic team.
