For the first time in several years, Bradie Tennell is healthy for a full season – and it’s paying dividends.
She seemingly came out of nowhere to win a surprise bronze medal at the Skate America Grand Prix over Thanksgiving weekend. Then, she won a gold medal at the national championships in January and was named to her first Olympic team.
