All Three U.S. World Teams

Shani was just getting started. When he was 22 years old, he won his third consecutive U.S. All-Around Championship and Regional Qualifier in the long track events. That same year, he became the first U.S. skater to make all three World Teams in the same season (World Sprint, World All-Around and World Short Track).
