Tampa Am 2018 Friday Open Qualifiers Photos

Posted on Saturday, November 10, 2018 by Chris

The first official day of Tampa Am starts with Open Qualifiers. That means they aren't officially qualified yet and need to skate an extra day to make it in. Congrats to Brazil's Vinicius Costa on picking up a straight shot ticket to the Semi Finals tomorrow and to all the top 10 skaters that advanced.
