Defending Skate America champ Kimmie Meissner addresses the media Thursday afternoon.

Skate America, the first major event of the figure skating season starts Friday at 3 p.m. in Everett.

Some of the best skaters in the world will be at the Comcast Center for the three-day event. This season is especially important for the skaters because it sets the tone for next season when the big prize will be the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

I’ll be at the Comcast Center this weekend covering the event. You can read my dispatches on my 2010 Olympics blog or daily in The News Tribune’s sports section.
