(30 December 2021) Bradie Tennell has withdrawn from the 2022 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Nashville, Tennessee. No reason has been provided at this time.
Tennell withdrew from the 2021 Skate America Grand Prix earlier in the season due to a foot injury. She subsequently withdrew from the Grand Prix of Italy and the CS Cup of Austria.
U.S. skaters have been named to international teams in the past without having competed at U.S. Nationals, but having missed her entire season, it is unlikely she would be named to the Olympic Team even if she were fit to skate prior to the Games. Nevertheless, she has petitioned to be named to the team. The women members of the team will be selected following the conclusion of the Women's event in Nashville, based on results at Nationals and previous competition results.
