“Over the past two weekends, my partner, Jacob Payne, and I have been fortunate enough to compete in two Junior Grand Prix events in both Tallinn, Estonia and Dresden, Germany. We felt both were amazing experiences as we got to skate in two beautiful arenas while being able to compete against some of the world’s best Junior skaters. We were thrilled to gain new season’s bests in Dresden last week and learned a lot in the process, from new warm up techniques to adjusting to the exciting challenge of competing on the world stage. We want to thank our coach, Phillip Poole, for all of his encouragement and dedication and everyone at NISA for organising all of the logistics. We were honoured to represent Great Britain and are so grateful that we were assigned these Junior Grand Prix events.”
