“13 ladies... 13 buns... and 26 blades... That’s what it takes to be a top medalist.
Let this be a lesson, to any young child playing sports or an adult pursuing a passion. You may not have the best facility, the best equipment or all the time you ever need to practice, but with a lot of hard work and dedication, and even more hard work, you can accomplish anything. David literally took down Goliath in Wichita this weekend. While it may not seem like much to those who don't understand Synchronized Figure Skating... Second place at this event is a pretty huge deal for this little team from Austin, Texas. Congratulations Ladies!”
