Carnival's notes to win the silver title
Canada's Golding Ice Junior won silver in their first-ever international competition in Sheffield, England.
For its first international experience, the Quebec Golding Ice junior team brought home a silver title at the Steel City Trophy in Sheffield (GBR). Interview with this team!
"We train three times a week and sometimes add a fourth practice at specific times depending on the competition schedule. We train between 7 and 10 hours of ice time per week," explained the team.
Two hours of workout and strength training, 2-4 hours of dance with professionals or choreography off-ice. "Our dance professionals this year were Jessie Mineau and Médric Filion. We also do about 1 hour of stretching, and each athlete must also take time at home to work on personal things to improve on and off the ice," said the athletes.
For the long program, the atmosphere was totally different as Golding Ice Junior skated to "The Rio Carnival." "Throughout the year, we had nothing but fun performing it, and for the most part, it is one of our favorite programs to perform."
"Yes, Steel City Trophy was our first experience at an international competition, and we were so happy to be there and experience this beautiful moment together. Our participation in the competition was wonderful, the volunteers were super helpful, and the event was well organized.
We had a lot of ups and downs this year, but we finally managed to have our international and get a silver medal. Our goals for the season were to get 55 points in the short program and break the 100 mark in our long program. Both of these goals were achieved!" said the Quebec team.
