Lynn Kriengkrairut (Thai: ลินน์ เกรียงไกรรัตน์; rtgs: Lin Kriangkrairat; born October 4, 1988) is an American ice dancer. With partner Logan Giulietti-Schmitt, she is a two-time (2011–2012) Ice Challenge champion and the 2012 U.S. national pewter medalist.
Logan Giulietti-Schmitt contacted Kriengkrairut after seeing her on IcePartnerSearch. They began skating together in July 2006, agreeing to form a partnership on the second day of a planned three-day tryout. The two were coached by Yuri Chesnichenko and Yaroslava Nechaeva from the start of their partnership. They won the junior bronze medal at the 2007 U.S. Championships in their first season together.
Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt received a host invitation to compete at 2010 Skate America where they finished 6th. At the 2011 U.S. Championships, they were in fourth after the short dance but dropped to fifth overall after a fall at the end of their free dance.
At the 2012 U.S. Championships, Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt placed fourth in both segments and won the pewter medal. The following season, they were fifth at the 2013 U.S. Championships. They changed coaches in February 2013, joining Igor Shpilband in Novi, Michigan. Kriengkrairut sustained a concussion in late June 2013. The two decided to retire from competition in April 2014.
Kriengkrairut is of Thai descent. Her mother is a pediatric neurologist and her father a pulmonologist. She was raised in Bismarck, North Dakota and attended Century High School. In 2004, she underwent surgery after being diagnosed with pulmonary sequestration.
