Glory from the ashes 

One-night-only showing of RISE shares a poignant Olympic story

On Feb. 17, clubs in all 50 states will be celebrating a milestone: the release of RISE, a feature film that has been hailed as a layered, engaging portrait of the history of U.S. Figure Skating. If that's enough to make you execute a triple-axel yawn, refrain: The film reveals that history in light of one of the great untold sagas of American Olympic sports.

A defining moment

The spirit of the '61 Team'

Inspiring a new generation
