Student James Cha Wins Gold!
Hello my name is James Cha. I am eight years old. I’ve been skating since I was 3. I skate 5 days a week. Back in December I started landing an Axel. This is a jump that you need to spin 1.5 revolutions in the air. I have been working hard with my coaches and trying to improve my skating, jumps and spins. I guess the hard work has paid off. On February 4, 2017, Star Skate Central Ontario championship in star 4 U10 (under 10) I became the gold medalist. In an axel it feels like the world is turning all around me. Before my solo starts my heart is beating because I feel so much pressure, but as soon as I start racing down the ice I feel only freedom.
