Team Phoenix from Belgium travelled to Germany this weekend to participate in its first competition of the season. With 127.92 points in total, the Senior skaters finished second behind Team Berlin 1.
This weekend, the Belgians participated in their first international competition of the season by participating in the "Grosser Berliner Bär" in Germany. All team members were vaccinated, which made travelling a little bit easier for the team. "Besides wearing a mask and trying to stay safe, it finally felt like a normal competition again."
The free program is inspired by the comedy film Ocean's 8. "We've created our own Ocean's 19. The 19 of us are trying to steal a diamond. In the program, we portray the storyline of our heist: first, we gather the team, and together we make a plan. Then we look for the perfect location to steal the diamond: a glamourous party. Eventually, it's showtime, and we successfully accomplish our mission," said Team Phoenix.
Anyway, since the start of the season, Team Phoenix has been in good shape! "We have 18 girls and one boy. We have nine new skaters in the team since our last performance in Sheffield at the Steel City Trophy in 2020," continued the team.
"We are very excited to skate together again after a year of closed ice rinks. We are also very proud of our new skaters, and we feel confident for the rest of the season. In Berlin, we received some valuable feedback that gives us the motivation to keep working hard this season," said the Belgian skaters.
