Darling Daughter and her disability Synchro Skating gorup competed at Skate London yesterday. They got a fine score, higher than some of the non-mixed ability teams (and the judges were instructed to “score as usual” so no slack given) and won a medal. Yes, like the last time, they were the only mixed ability group. so competing unopposed, but it is still a pretty massive achievement and we are very proud of DD.
Here she is in the warm-up practice session:
You can tell it was hard work as her clear face mask is a bit steamed up!
And here she is with her (obscured for privacy) skating partner. Her last one moved on the Uni and she is still “breakig in” the new one! Funnily enough they are both named the same. It’ll be a while before this one stops being the “New Name” and just becomes “name.”
They skated to a some from The Greatest Showman! Had she not been exhausted when she finally got home last night I would have snapped a photo of her with her medal. It seems the Covid precautions were kind of a mixed bag, at times ultra-strict and at other times seemingly quite lax, but hopefully it will be fine. It would have been better had The Hubster and DD both had their boosters (and they will before the big Christmas Skate show) but they were as cautious as could be, only unmasked on the ice.
Fingers crossed all will be well. Back to normal tomorrow!
