AT&T Team USA Member Evan Lysacek Calls Sweeps Winners with the News
Dallas, Texas - Delivering the exciting opportunity to see Team USATM hopefuls competing live, AT&T* announced that Knoxville residents Mark Beyer and his daughter, Kylie Beyer, are the winners of AT&T's "Watch Them Spin" sweepstakes.
AT&T Team USA figure skater Evan Lysacek personally notified the Beyers that they will receive two tickets to the 2010 AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Spokane, Wash, the chance to meet an AT&T-sponsored athlete, see the axels, spins and much, much more during the events on Jan. 21 through 24. Listen to Evan's call to the Beyers here: http://fanzone.att.net/teamusa/show/skate-america
"As members of the Knoxville Figure Skating Club (KFSC), my daughter and I are huge figure skating fans. I've been skating since age eight, and Kylie since age three, and Kylie was even named the winner of the 2008-2009 KFSC Junior Skater Award last year," said Mark Beyer. "Winning this trip to Spokane to see these stellar athletes in person is simply amazing, and we can't wait to share pictures from this once-in-a-lifetime experience."
During their visit to the 2010 AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships the Beyers will have the chance to meet AT&T-sponsored figure skater Rachael Flatt.

"AT&T is thrilled to present this opportunity to such avid skating fans like the Beyers," said Danielle Kent, AT&T associate director of Olympic Integration. "We are honored to support U.S. Figure Skating and to continue to keep fans connected to some of the world's best athletes."
