Career[edit]

Brandon Frazier and Haven Denney first teamed up in 2002 as roller skaters before switching to the ice.[1][2] As figure skaters, they competed together from 2005–2008, coached by Jim Peterson and Lyndon Johnston.[3] They won the 2008 U.S. intermediate bronze medal but then split.[2]

Denney / Frazier teamed up again in spring 2011.[1][2] They competed on the 2011–2012 ISU Junior Grand Prix series, placing 8th and 7th in Latvia and Austria. They won the junior title at the 2012 U.S. Championships and were assigned to the 2012 World Junior Championships where they placed 4th. The pair was coached by Dalilah Sappenfield in Colorado Springs, Colorado until the fall of 2012 when they moved to Coral Springs, Florida to train with John Zimmerman and Silvia Fontana at Coral Gables.[6]

In the 2012–13 season, Denney / Frazier finished 4th at the 2012 JGP USA held in Lake Placid, New York. They won gold at the 2013 World Junior Championships, the first American pair to win the title since 2007.
