Jeremy Abbott scores high enough to beat record

Ice skating fans at TD Garden got a treat Friday night as world records were broken.

Jeremy Abbott had a score high enough to break the world record for men’s short program with a 99.86. Although, because this is a national competition his score will not be in the record books.

Richard Dornbush is in second place after the short program, he scored a 92.04.

“Someone asked me what my new year’s resolution was and I hadn’t really thought about it – I’m not a new year’s resolution kind of guy, but then it came to me and I was like “you know what, I’m going to land more quad sua cows in competition and that was my new year’s resolution and I’m on a good track so far,” Dornbush said.

Local Olympian Ross Miner is currently in 8th place with a score of 71.94.

Ice dancing competition also took place Friday Charlie White and Meryl Davis were in first place. Their short program put them in a good place for their sixth national title.

Alex and Maia Shibutani, a brother and sister from Michigan, are in third place after the short program.
