          Did you know that our school has a student that’s name is Elsa Cheng who is taking place in national figure skating events? We asked her a few questions regarding competing nationally the first we asked her a few questions 1. what is it like to compete and she said “during competition there is a lot of pressure so I get a little nervous. When I’m about to start though I feel, confident and I skate how I usually skate. 2. Then we asked her what her best qualities are. She said her best qualities are being able to do triple jumps which are three rotations in the air. It’s very difficult for many skaters and not many can do triple jumps, so being able to do them is a great quality. Elsa said skating is hard for her. “Yes, skating is hard, but when you first start skating, learning to do new things is tricky at first, but then they get easier when you practice a lot and get used to it”. Elsa also said“I can skate really well because I placed first at regionals, in my level, which qualified me to move onto sectionals. I also got first in sectionals so that qualified me to go to nationals. I ended up getting top ten in the whole country for my level to that’s pretty decent”.

Twin Rinks Ice Pavilion in Buffalo Grove held a send-off Saturday for area figure skaters heading to the U.S. Figure Skating championships. Leff to right are skaters Matthew Soifer, Ava Neuhaus, Elsa Cheng, Calista Choi, Isabelle Inthisone and Hannah Lofton.

We also asked her if she gets dizzy when she skates Yes, I get dizzy, but only when I’m spinning on the ice. When I’m rotating in the air, it’s so fast that your body doesn’t know you’re spinning so that doesn’t make you dizzy. Spinning on the ice makes me really dizzy because there is nothing to focus on when I’m spinning. This is incredible how a student in our school has the abilities to do this.
