On June 5 2008 Justine Minish of Michigan's Onyx-Suburban SA reached the summit of Figure Skating's test structure. Passing the Senior Freeskating test and the 15 tests that must precede it is a tremendously difficult task that requires years and years of dedicated work, and a great deal of skill. Only a small percentage of skaters can claim this great prize, and very few among the general public can claim any other accomplishment of comparable effort.
Justine's accomplishment is made extra special for me because many years ago I single-panel judged her very first test (PPM) on a special day that was the very first-ever test taken at the Onyx club. Congratulations to Justine on this special day !!!!
