"I started skating when I was 6 and I have been a synchro skater for 18 years, competing in Novice, Junior, Mixed Age and Senior category; I am also a figure skating teacher and I coached Juvenile and Novice teams. In the meantime, I graduated from medical school and now I am a resident doctor, specializing in orthopaedics and traumatology. Since I have spent most of my life on the ice, I have always been interested in sport trauma and athletes' health, especially about figure and synchro skating! Moreover, I love mountains, skiing and travelling around the world any time I have the chance."
What does synchronized skating mean to you?
"Synchro skating is much more than a sport: it combines strength, endurance, dance and gymnastic moves, art, interpretation, musicality, creativity, geometry and, last but not least, long lasting friendships and teamwork! "
