Paige Ellingson Achieves Gold Medal
Congratulations to figure skating member Paige Ellingson
who tested and passed her Senior Moves in the Field test last on Friday August
Figure Skaters that pass the highest test in a particular
discipline in figure skating become U.S. Figure Skating Gold Medalists. Earning
a U.S. Figure Skating test gold medal is a major achievement. Every American
figure skater that the public sees competing at the World Figure Skating
Championships and at the Olympics is a “Gold Medalist”.
Moves in the Field refer to skill tests consisting of
progressively more difficult edge and step patterns from the Pre Preliminary
level up through Senior level. There are eight tests in all, and skaters
typically take one test per year of skating depending on their level of commitment
and training time. Similar concepts are called Field Moves in the United
Kingdom and Skating Skills in Canada.
Skaters must develop power, quickness, clean turn
execution, edge quality, extension, carriage and continuous flow. The skater
must also demonstrate bilateral movement with equal strength.
This achievement has taken Paige several years of hard
work, dedication, persistence and patience.
Congratulations on a great accomplishment Paige!
