|Skating has brought Rachael across the globe.
In the 2007-08 season alone, Rachael won a gold medal at a Junior Grand Prix competition in Austria, traveled to Yokohama, Japan as part of Team USA where both the ladies and the men won their team events, took home a silver from JGP Germany and won the JGP Final in Poland. She finished second at the U.S. Championships in St. Paul, Minn., and won the World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. Rachael also traveled to Canada for choreography as well as throughout the country to perform in shows, many of them charitable efforts.
Rachael competed in Everett, Wash., where she finished in her senior Grand Prix debut at Skate America, and second at the Cup of Russia in Moscow, to start out the 2008-09 season. Rachael won the silver medal at the 2009 at the U.S. Championships, qualifying her for her first World Championships, where she placed an impressive fifth. She closed out 2009 by finishing fourth at Cup of China and second at Skate America, where she won the free skate, beating a field that included 2009 World Champion Yu-Na Kim of Korea.
Her success around the world made her the top American lady heading into the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada, and beyond. In 2010, Rachael won her first U.S. Champion and achieved a life long goal of becoming an Olympian. She also won two silver medals on the Grand Prix in 2010, qualifying her for her first Grand Prix Final.
In December 2008, the U.S. Olympic Committee named Rachael as one of the 10 athletes to watch in the lead up to the Games. She was named an Athlete Ambassador for the USOC's Team for Tomorrow Humanitarian Relief Fund in December 2009. Rachael is also a part of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's "I Complete Clean" public awareness campaign that launched in January 2010.
But maintaining that level of elite skating — with everything from coaching to costuming and program music to skates — costs thousands of dollars annually for the Flatt family. To help Rachael meet her goals in the sport, including a berth on the Olympic team, consider making a donation to her training fund or having her endorse your organization or product.
Current partners include AT&T and Reading Is Fundamental (RIF). Rachael has been teaming with RIF, the nation's oldest and largest children and families' literacy nonprofit organization, since December 2008. Through RIF, Rachael is helping encourage kids to gear up for a year of reading fun through a special feature on the RIF Reading Planet page.
Rachael is also partnered with the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee (CPAC). The CPAC was founded in 1941 with the key goal of organizing the then more than 175 Colorado Potato Growers and Colorado Potato Shippers throughout Colorado under a common purpose and industry. Self-regulation and quality standards; production practice management, legislation, marketing, and research funding are some of the key functions of CPAC.
Today, CPAC represents a smaller grower and shipper group in both its Regions (San Luis Valley and Greeley) reflecting a consolidated marketplace, but its 175 members and dedicated staff represent a dynamic force working together for the future of the entire potato industry.
Rachael is also mentored by Olympic Champion Dorothy Hamill.
