Personal life[edit]

Haven Denney was born in Ocala, Florida. She competed as a roller skater until 2004 and won the 2003 U.S. pairs roller skating silver medal.[1] Her sister, Caydee Denney, is also a competitive pair skater.[1]


Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier first teamed up in 2002 as roller skaters before switching to the ice.[2][3] As figure skaters, they competed together from 2005–2008, coached by Jim Peterson and Lyndon Johnston.[4] They won the 2008 U.S. intermediate bronze medal but then split.[3] Denney then competed with Daniel Raad for three seasons.[5]

Denney/Frazier teamed up again in spring 2011.[2][3] They competed on the 2011–12 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 2012–13 ISU Junior Grand Prix event 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.

For the 2013-14 season, the team placed fifth in both their Grand Prix events at 2013 Skate Canada International and 2013 NHK Trophy. They were also fifth at the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and took fourth at the 2014 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships.

In 2014-15, Denney and Frazier placed first at Lombardia Trophy and second at the Skate Canada Autumn Classica, both of which are ISU Challenger Series events. They then took silver at 2014 Skate America, their first medal on the Grand Prix circuit, and finished fourth at the 2014 Rostelecom Cup.

In the second half of the season, the team went on to win the silver medal at the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. After nationals, the skaters began training full time under Ingo Steuer. They then competed at the 2015 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and the 2015 World Figure Skating Championships where they finished seventh and twelfth, respectively.

In April 2015, the team changed their training location from Coral Springs, Fla. to West Palm Beach, Fla.[7]
