I am Daniel Kulenkamp, a 20 year old, Team USA skater from Minnesota. My most recent achievement was placing 10th at the Senior level at the US Championships in St. Paul, MN, last January. I was absolutely thrilled to make it into the top ten, and honored to be among the nation’s best. In 2014, I moved from Minnesota to Scottsdale, Arizona to train with new coaches at a new facility. In September of 2014 I was named to Team USA for the first time and had the opportunity to compete at my first Junior Grand Prix in Zagreb, Croatia.
Skating is an extremely time consuming and expensive sport. Between coaching fees, ice time costs, off ice training, travel and lodging during competitions, and entry fees, it can be a bit difficult to support my skating. If you’d like to help contribute, please visit the Support Daniel page. I am also running a GoFundMe campaign to help defer some of my costs of the upcoming championships in St. Paul. The campaign can be found here.
My ultimate goal is to compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Competing in Croatia was a great learning experience and the first step in achieving my goal.
