Axel contest update

Well, I didn’t make the finals of’s axel contest, but apparently I did make the top half. I still wonder how many entries they received in the adult category. For my participation, I did receive this nifty certificate.

It sounds like there will be upcoming contests for other jumps, but mostly double and triple jumps. That means that I won’t get to participate, since I have none of those. It did appear that spins would be a future contest category, so perhaps I can enter some of those?

Anyway, thank you all for the encouragement. Hopefully next year my axel will be bigger and stronger than ever!

    I’m glad you put in an entry, Eva, and I like the look of your new website!

    The heading “Worldwide Best Axel Contest” is definitely impressive! I think your spins would most definitely get some pluses too. Well done, Eva!

      Thanks for your vote of confidence, Jo! I might be able to hang with sit spins but not much else!
