Figure Skater Polina Edmunds Wows During Short Program; Tops Gracie Gold At US National Championships 2016
“I just really wanted to feel comfortable on the ice and show the judges how beautiful this program is,” she shared after her skate. “There’s always pre-competition hype and buzz, and I don’t really pay attention to it. Of course I’ve never had a chance to be in this position before, so I’m really excited and happy that I’m finally here. But really, I know that it comes down to who skates the best on the ice, and I’m glad what I put down today was my best and that I was rewarded for it.”
In the pairs competition, Tarah Kayne and Danny O’Shea topped the leaderboard with 69.61, ahead of defending champs Alexa Scimeca and Christopher Knierim and Marissa Castelli and Mervyn Tran in third.
