Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre are the 2008, 2009, and 2010 U.S. National Figure Skating ice dance bronze medalists, and the 2008 Four Continents bronze medalists.

Kim Navarro was born on April 26, 1981, in Santa Rosa, California. She began skating when she was three years old. Her mother, Lisa Illsley Navarro, was an elite pairs skater and ice show star who became a choreographer and figure skating coach. Kim has four siblings. She is a graduate of Columbia University.

Brent Bommentre was born on May 10, 1984, in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania. He began skating when he was six years old. He has two younger sisters. His hobbies are rock climbing, cycling and cooking. His great-grandfather almost made the Olympics in weightlifting.

Robbie Kaine and Cheryl Demkowski Snyder coached Navarro and Bommentre. They trained and skated in Ardmore and Aston, Pennsylvania five to six hours on the ice, six days a week.

Navarro and Bommentre received the “Best Ice Dance Performance” award from Professional Skaters Association at 2006 U.S. National Figure Skating Championships.

Like many figure skaters, Kimberly Navarro and Brent Bommentre hoped to make the US Olympic team. After they left competitive skating, both expressed an interest in coaching young skaters and performing. Sadly, they did not qualify for the 2010 US Olympic Figure Skating Team, but did go on to professional careers in figure skating.
