World champion figure skater Kimmie Meissner will skate an exhibition at the University of Delaware on Sunday - not Saturday, as previously reported - as part of a send-off show for athletes competing at U.S. Nationals.

Meissner, 17, of Bel Air, who was the runner-up at nationals last year and finished sixth at the Olympics, will perform to "Keep Holding On" from the soundtrack of Eragon.

The show also will include appearances by U.S. ice dance silver medalists Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov and 2006 Junior World bronze medalist Christine Zukowski. In addition, world ice dance champions Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski of Bulgaria will perform.

The show at Fred Rust Arena is at 2:30 p.m. Tickets, which can be purchased through Ticketmaster, are $15 for general admission and $12 for those who are 62 and older or 18 and younger.
