Competitive Figure Skating Research Paper

Satisfactory Essays
For the past nine years of my life, I have been a competitive figure skating. Every morning before school and every afternoon following, I spent every minute of my free time bettering myself. I trained intensely 6 days a week, followed by a one day rest. I took an innumerable amount of workout classes and maintained a strict, no carb diet for four years. When I was 14 years old, I hit puberty. The body I knew so well, was able to balance on a ¼ of an inch blade, had completely changed overnight. I became unable to do almost every single jump and spin, things that had become second nature to me. I was completely devastated and cried every time I glided onto the ice. My whole career as a figure skater had completely crumbled in my mittened hands.
