Figure Skating program uses picture of wrong Twin City

Publish date:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The event program for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Minnesota gained a bit attention on social media for all the wrong reasons after St. Paul's mayor noticed it features a photo of the other Twin City.

The program, which includes a welcome letter from St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, features a photo of the Stone Arch Bridge - a landmark in neighboring Minneapolis.

The mayor, who is used to the perception that St. Paul is the lesser of the Twin Cities, took it in stride. He tweeted a photo of the mix-up on Friday, writing, ''Our plans to take over (at)cityminneapolis have been compromised.''

The Star Tribune ( ) reports that U.S. Figure Skating spokeswoman Renee Felton says the mistake was an ''honest and unfortunate one'' that meant no disrespect to St. Paul.
