Alissa Czisny

Czisny gained international attention in 2005 when she won Skate Canada International and placed second at Skate America. She qualified for the 2005–2006 Grand Prix Final and placed sixth. She went on to the 2006 U.S. Championships in St. Louis, where she was a heavy favorite to place in the top three. However, Czisny fell multiple times and finished seventh overall.

She began the 2006-07 season at Skate Canada International where she placed fourth. She also competed at Cup of Russia in November. At the 2007 United States Figure Skating Championships she was in fifth after the short program, but went on to win the free skate to take the bronze medal and the final U.S. spot to the 2007 World Figure Skating Championships in Tokyo, Japan. At the World Championships, she finished 15th.

She finished third at the 2008 Skate Canada International in the 2008–2009 Grand Prix of Figure Skating series behind Joannie Rochette and Fumie Suguri.

She is known for her fast, well-positioned spins and graceful spirals. Unlike most skaters, Czisny spins and jumps clockwise. Czisny skates in Jackson Proflex hinged boots, and is currently the most successful skater to do so. She is coached by Julie Berlin.
