U.S. Figure Skating announced Sunday night attendance for the 2013 championships this past week at CenturyLink Center Omaha was 90,760.

“We have heard nothing but overwhelmingly positive remarks from our athletes, officials and fans about the experience in Omaha,” said U.S. Figure Skating Executive Director David Raith.

“Great crowds, especially during the senior events, created a backdrop for great skating. The city was featured throughout the weekend on the event’s coverage on NBC and the local figure skating clubs benefited from the experience of the U.S. Championships coming to Omaha. We are pleased overall and thank the city, fans and local media for their support of the event."

The U.S. Championships concluded Sunday night with the Smucker’s Skating Spectacular, featuring performances by the 2013 U.S medalists. The Skating Spectacular will be broadcast on NBC from 12-2 p.m. this Saturday.
