Championship Gold Ladies {Video}

As promised, here is the video from my adult sectionals competition. This is my performance from the Championship Gold Ladies event, where I placed 11th out of 22.

My spin coach and I are still baffled by my second spin. Somehow, I earned a level 3 spin, but we can’t figure out why. I only executed two features, so it should have been called as a level 2. I guess someone liked me that day!

    Well done Eva! A nice program to watch while we’re all locked down and locked off the ice!

    I counted at least three revolutions in three different positions! So happy to see your lovely choreography and those strong elements (I cheered for the axel combo!) As George said, it’s so nice to have this video to remind us of fun skating memories and of good times to come.

      It’s hard to believe that event was only a month ago. Feels like last year!

      I’ve been working on my expression so I’m happy it’s finally starting to show. The music is the Grand Pas De Deux from the Nutcracker. Not sure if ever want to skate to Swan Lake – too many expectations on that piece!
