A couple days ago, I was had the pleasure of judging Stephanie Crosby's Senior Freeskating Test. I've been privileged to know Stephanie since she started skating, and have seen most of her tests. On May 24, 2006 she reached the top, and became a Gold Medalist. Passing the Senior 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.
To every skater that successfully meets this challenge, and especially to Stephanie on this special day, Congratulations !!!
