Jessica Gaudy (our National Silver Medalist in World Class Women's Solo Dance) has kept in touch with us all via the magic of Facebook during her whole stay at the 2010 Roller Figure World Championships in Portimao, Portugal. Her reports from the first official practice let us know that the floor was still a little tricky thanks to the chilly air. Then came more practices, team photos, Opening Ceremonies, a little shopping and even more practices. When the competitions began, Jessica was there to support her teammates - even at official practices when possible.
It is no surprise that she skated well enough to place 5th in a field of 19 contestants and received good free dance scores.
There's a lot more good news from the Senior World Championship. Fellow solo dance team member, Erin Ovens-Scalzitti, won the Silver Medal in the same event; Joseph Farias III finished in 5th place in World Class Men's Solo Dance; and Anthony Deluca finished in 7th place in the men's event.
Aubrey Orcutt/Robert Hines skated a beautiful and confident long program to become the World Pairs Bronze Medalists. Eric Hadley/Siobhan Boismier finished 7th and Alexander Poland/Mackenzie Wriedt finished 8th in the pairs final.
