As many synchro teams around the world prepare to kick off the new season, Jura Synchro looks back on the 5 best interviews from the season gone past.

Six interviews we recommend this weekend! 

Sarah Vuoppola
Her story had fascinated many synchro fans. And for good reason! This Swedish girl travelled to the neighbouring country, Finland, to live her dream with the famous Helsinki Rockettes. Find out how she acclimated to her new team.

Two parts interview!

Yurika Ando
Another beautiful travelling story is the experience of Yurika Ando. She left Japan to skate in Germany with Team Berlin 1. Apart from the language, this synchro skater had to face several difficulties. 

Her interview here!

Tuuli & Eve
Covid has also made things difficult for many skaters. Last season was tough, even for the biggest teams in the world. At the end of the season, we had an update with Tuuli and Eve, the captains of Team Unique (FIN). 

Rediscover their interview (in two parts).

Alana Christie
Whatever the situation, when the passion is there, then everything is possible. Alana Christie is one of the best examples. This young coach is now in charge of the Northernettes teams in the United States and her journey is amazing.

Learn more about Alana through an article and a special video in the Jura Synchro Express!

Simon & Dominic
There are skaters who make their mark. Simon and Dominic from Nova in Canada were part of the team when it reached the top. Who are they and what are they up to?
