The best European singles skaters competed last weekend in Tallinn, Estonia. The only synchro team in the country participated in the opening ceremony.
The Mixed Age Team Diamonds from Estonia took part in the opening ceremony of the European Figure Skating Championships a few days ago.
"We danced a rather light dance, the meaning of which was to show the values of Estonian culture, namely native dances. Arvo Pärt is the composer of the piece we danced to (Ukuaru Waltz). This composer is also very famous and valuable in Estonia," said the team coached by Lea Rand (head coach) and Kristiina Lokai (assistant coach).
A total of 36 skaters participated in this performance.
The team is planning to start the competitions very soon. "In Sweden at the Nacka Trophy 2022," said the team. This competition will be held from February 4-6. "This will be our first and only start this year. Unfortunately, other competitions that we planned were cancelled. Therefore, we are very happy and looking forward to performing in Sweden."
