Jeremy Barrett (born April 10, 1984 in Sarasota, Florida) is an American former pair skater. With Caydee Denney, he won the 2010 2010 U.S. Championships and competed at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Career[edit]

Jeremy Barrett began skating at the age of eight. He competed as a single skater on the novice level at the regional level. His first pairs partner was his sister Shawn-Marie and they competed at the U.S. Junior Championships.[1]

Barrett teamed up with Shantel Jordan in 2001. Because of the age difference between them, they were unable to compete internationally on the junior level.[1] They were the 2004 U.S. junior national champions. They competed at the 2005 French Figure Skating Championships as guests and placed 1st on the senior level. Their partnership ended in 2006.

Barrett began skating with Caydee Denney in 2006 but the partnership did not last. They teamed up again in 2008 and began competing in the 2008-2009 season.[2] They placed 4th at the 2008 Nebelhorn Trophy. They won the silver medal at the 2009 U.S. Nationals. They placed sixth at the 2009 Four Continents Championships. The following season they won the U.S. national title and the right to compete at the Olympics where they finished 13th. They placed 7th at the World Championships.

At the 2011 U.S. Nationals, they won the bronze medal and were assigned to compete at Four Continents, however they were forced to withdraw. Denney accidentally sliced Barrett's calf on his right leg while practicing side-by-side jumps. He explained that "It cut all the way to the muscle, so I had to get 12 stitches on the muscles, 14 to close that up and 16 on the outside."[3]

Denney and Barrett ended their partnership in February 2011.[4] Barrett said he intended to focus on coaching and performing in shows.[4]
