Bradie Tennell claimed the ladies’ singles title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose, California. The 19-year old Tennell will be one of the three Americans who will compete at the upcoming Olympic Games. She’ll be joined by second-place finisher Mirai Nagasu and defending champion Karen Cheng, who placed third. 

Tennell, who resides in Carpentersville, Illinois, was the U.S. junior champion in 2015.

The three were selected for the Olympic team by the United States Figure Skating Association based on their body of work.

Three-time national champion Ashley Wagner placed fourth. Wagner, who made the Olympic team in 2014 despite placing fourth at nationals that year, will be an alternate this time around.
