The CenturyLink Center is gearing up to get a lot of ice — and in a very short amount of time.
On Monday, crews moved into the facility's exhibition halls to begin building a 17,000-square-foot ice rink that will be used for practice during the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. That event begins Sunday with novice and junior-level competitors, with senior-level skaters on the ice starting Thursday.
