Brooklyn Bakke - Triple Gold Medalist!

Brooklyn Bakke, daughter of Joanie and the late Dennis Bakke and a sophomore at Lincoln HS, recently passed her Senior Solo Free Dance to become a three time US Figure Skating Gold Medalist. According to US Figure Skating, “In a typical year, approximately 30,000 U.S. Figure Skating test levels are completed by athletes; of those, about 1,350, or 4.5 percent, are at the gold or senior level.” These national tests are the highest test level a US figure skater can achieve. Bakke is coached by Lisa Semanko and previously earned Gold Medalist status by passing her Senior level Moves in the Field and Gold level dances. According to Bakke, her next goal is “to pass my senior freeskate test like Abigail [Semanko].” 

Bakke joins only seven other TRFSC figure skaters in the 40+ year history of the club to achieve US Figure Skating gold medalist status. There are three single gold medalists (they have earned top levels in one discipline, either moves in the field or dance); three double gold medalists, including current teammate, Emma Christianson; and one quadruple gold medalist, TRFSC college club member Abigail Semanko.


Emma Christianson - Double Gold Medalist!

Congratulations to Emma Christianson who passed her Senior Solo Free Dance on Sunday, January 31, 2021, in a virtual test session held in Thief River Falls to become a United States Figure Skating Double Gold Medalist! “Becoming a U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to the sport. In a typical year, approximately 40,000 U.S. Figure Skating test levels are completed by athletes; of those, about 1,300, or 3 percent, are at the gold or senior level.” Emma Christianson is the daughter of Del and Sherri Christianson and a junior at Lincoln High School. She has passed her Senior Moves in the Field and Senior Solo Free Dance to achieve this national recognition.

Emma joins only four other TRF skaters who, over the club’s 40+ year history, have achieved Double Gold Medalist status. Emma is a member of the Thief River Falls and Lincoln High School Skating Clubs and is coached by Lisa Semanko.
