 IN HIS OWN WORDS:

“Some people may be surprised but my goal was to be in the top 3 and hopefully go to the Olympics. But, I also want to make it on the national team (top 5). Another goal was to get my axels into both programs and obviously I’ve done that. I am happy about doing my triple axel in my long today. I delivered all of my elements with quality.”

 ON RECEIVING A STANDING OVATION FROM THE AUDIENCE:

“It made me feel extremely proud of myself. Because I know when they stand up, I know that I have given it my all to them and my practices are paying off.”
