    Sean Rabbitt

    Sean Rabbitt, born April 8, 1990 in Orange, California, USA, is a figure skater who competes for the United States internationally. He recently had his best showing at Nationals, finishing 9th, and won the bronze medal at his first international competition, Skate Canada Autumn Classic International, in fall of 2015.

    Sean says his name.

    Congrats to Sean on a bronze medal at his first International assignment this week! I thought he deserved his own thread here to talk about how awesome he is

    Sean got loud cheers from the crowd as he took his bows at the Autumn Classic medal ceremony.

    He was seen wiping his eyes on the podium ... I think he had gotten teary with emotion. [And he has made me cry with happiness for him this week.]

    Those are a couple of the Sean highlights from the @michlmint fancam Instagram video snippets of the medal ceremony that I just posted in the ACI videos thread:

    tulosai, thanks for starting this thread for Sean.

    Congratulations on the bronze medal today
    This was my first time to actually watch him skate. I should pay more attention to US Nationals instead of just watching the top guys. I liked both the American men competing here. The depth is incredible!

    I like his spirit and how happy he was to be at SC Classic. To get the bronze medal for his first International competition was just the cherry on top. I wish him well in his career!

    I Sean! The first time we got to see him was @ the Liberty Summer Competition (Ice Works in Aston, PA) 7/2010, and were immediately taken by his sense of humor, entertaining persona, and musicality. We've been cheering for him ever since! One of my favorite memories of last season's US Nationals was seeing Sean skate so well and making the US broadcast for the free skate!

    Thank you for starting this thread about Sean, and many congrats to him for his bronze medal in his first international event!

    A red head on a podium Congrats Sean on getting a 3rd place I'm really happy for him, especially since his programs weren't without mistakes, so if he improves things (like 3A) it will be even better! Wish him best luck

    Congratulations to Sean! It was great to see him so happy. And what a good ending too--to medal at your international debut and share the podium with Nam and Yuzuru. He must be completely over the moon, and I can't blame him. I did a couple of calculations and his score would have placed him 18th at World's... so I really hope the fed gives him more opportunities, because he's obviously earned them! Go Sean!

    ETA: Besides, he's a redhead, and I've got to support my fellow redheads!

    That is so sweet that Yuzuru helped him with what to do at the medal ceremony! He is a good writer (Sean I mean) the blog is just great!

    Some bits and pieces re our beloved Sean :

    (1) He does have an ISU bio , which I hope will be updated promptly:

    And Sean's name is due to be added to the ISU World Standings and Season's World Ranking lists:

    [ISU bios do include non-Challenger internationals (although they don't count for SBs). And skaters at non-Challenger internationals do earn ISU points for WS and SWR (although not as many points as for Challenger comps).]

    (2) More photos from the Autumn Classic:

    Candid shot of his dad taking a good look at the medal around Sean's neck:

    Sean's joyful spread eagle in his FS:

    Cute smiles from Sean, Nam, Yuzuru:
    Handsome smiles from the three:

    (3) Photos of recent artifacts from his fans:

    Customized blue ribbon in honor of Sean:

    Autographs from Sean, rabbit ears and all:

    How cool was it that Jeff Buttle presented the medals?

    Anyway, I found this last night - seems pretty recent from US Figure Skating's channel.

    I didn't know Sean was Jewish, another NJB (nice Jewish boy) skater (along with Jason, Max and Daniel S.) to follow (yes, I'm Jewish).

    Thx for the posting the USFS vid, apgold. I meant to include it in my post above, but forgot.

    As I mentioned in another thread, my favorite part of the vid is Sean saying his own name in Japanese as he takes a brief detour into a couple of sentences of fluent Japanese.

    And I previously mentioned my disappointment that USFS messed up the spelling of his name on the graphic within the video as well as on the YT page.

    But I do appreciate that USFS showcased Sean in this one-minute video. Thx again for posting the link.

    USFS published both Sean's video and Alex Johnson's within the last few days to coincide with the Autumn Classic.
    My hunch is that the videos were recorded at ISP camp in June, and purposely held for an opportune occasion.

    [Re Buttle presenting the medals: I believe the venue was Jeff's home rink? Agree that it was another cool thing for Sean to receive his medal from a World Champion.]
