Free Skate Video from Adult Nationals 2022 (finally!)

Hi everyone! It’s been almost a full year since I competed at Adult Nationals in April 2022. After a very long and frustrating wait, I finally have the video from my silver medal performance in the Gold Ladies II free skate event.

This is the best I have ever skated in a competition. Both axels counted (despite some negative Grades of Execution), and I earned a personal best. I did not spin very well in this event, as I lost several points on missed levels. However, I was thrilled with how I skated.

If you look hard enough, you will see my entourage of skaters both by the boards and in the stands (in the front row screaming for me to throw the chicken). I was happy to have done them proud. I know that my mom was watching me from the stands as well, and I hope she was proud of me too.

    That was so good. And the flip loop loop exceptional.

    What a graceful and lovely skate, Eva! There was such nice flow between your different elements and I really like that the second axel was stronger than the first! You really seemed to be loving it out there!
