    "I have been a synchro-mum for 15 years, five years of that as a team leader when my daughter skated in a junior team. I can´t even remember in how many competitions I have been but it´s always as exciting as at the first time.

It was not very beautiful to watch but because of that experience I have a feeling from what it is to practice and to compete."
