2010 U.S. Nationals - Men (Jeremy Abbott, Johnny Weir, Adam Rippon)
The 2010 U.S. Figure Skating Championships took place between January 14 and 24 at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena in Spokane, Washington with AT&T as the title sponsor. Skaters competed in four disciplines – men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing – across three levels: senior, junior, and novice. Medals were awarded in four colors: gold (first), silver (second), bronze (third), and pewter (fourth).
The Olympics were to begin 18 days after the end of the U.S. Championships. The senior-level Championship events were therefore spread out over two weekends to allow the skaters approximately four weeks between the end of their event and the start of the corresponding Olympic competition.
The event was among the criteria used to select the U.S. teams for the 2010 Winter Olympics, 2010 World Championships, 2010 Four Continents Championships, and 2010 World Junior Championships.
