Personal lifeEdit

Rachael Flatt wass born in Del Mar, California. She moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado to train. Her grandfather competed on the national level in Fencing.

She attends Cheyenne Mountain High School.

CareerEdit

Flatt began skating at age 4. She originally competed in both singles and pairs on the national level. As a pair skater, she won the silver medal at Nationals on the juvenile level in 2003 and the intermediate title in 2004, both with Andrew Speroff.

Flatt won the US Novice national title in 2005 at age 12. While normally this would have earned her an event on the Junior Grand Prix for the following season, Flatt was too young to compete internationally as a junior. She won the silver medal at US Nationals at the junior level in 2006.

She missed the 2006-2007 Junior Grand Prix season due to injury, but made her senior debut at the 2007 United States Figure Skating Championships, where she placed 5th and earned a bye to the 2008 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Flatt made her international debut as a junior in March, 2007 at the International Challenge Cup, which she won.

She competed on the Junior Grand Prix for the first time in the 2007-2008 season, winning the gold medal at her first JGP in Vienna, Austria, and a silver medal at her second JGP in Chemnitz, Germany. She qualified for the Junior Grand Prix Final where she won the silver medal. At the 2008 Nationals in St Paul, Minnesota, she won the silver medal on the senior level after winning the free skate. Too young to be eligible for the senior Worlds Championships, Flatt was placed on the team to the 2008 World Junior Figure Skating Championships. After placing third in the short program, she won the free skate and won the title overall.

Flatt began the 2008-2009 season at the 2008 Skate America, where she placed fourth overall. She also competed 2008 Cup of Russia, winning the silver medal behind Carolina Kostner of Italy.

She won the silver medal at the 2009 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
