Skating Fridays

Competing Today

Today, I am competing at Adult Sectionals. I will be taking the ice twice today. The first is my dramatic event, where I will be debuting a brand new program. The second is my Championship Gold event, where the top 4 skaters move on to represent our section at Adult Nationals.

If you don’t already follow me on Facebook, I may be posting updates there.

In the meantime, check out this recent double salchow attempt. While it’s not clean (or landed), it’s looking more like a real jump. I’m finally learning how to jump forward and out rather and up and around myself.

Good luck to all skaters competing this weekend!

    Eva, that double salchow is pretty darn close. Just a little more…. And I am sending good skating vibes for this weekend–go have a blast! Can’t wait to hear how it went!

      Thanks, Jo! I skated really poorly unfortunately. I got disoriented during my spins and went the wrong direction in my program – twice. Had I executed my elements like I normally do, I would have placed 7th or 8th overall (I ended up 16th out of 22).
