Sochi 2014 Figure Skating

This weekend I watched some of the figure skating at the Sochi Winter Olympics. The standard of the skating was amazing, and I thought that the best skater was the Russian 15 year old skater, Yulia Lipnitskaya, who won Gold in the Ladies figure skating.

You can watch her perform here by clicking on highlights.

I began figure skating when I came back from Malawi and now train twice a week in a competitive class. I still really enjoy it and am always trying to improve my own jumps and spins, and recently I’ve been lucky enough to get tickets to see Torvill and Dean in their final tour at Birmingham NIA in April.
