This time i was also asked if i would stay the next day and work on the camp as a coach, and im really glad i said yes=) I didnt know much about Värnamo but now i know that its surprisingly close to Copenhagen (about 3,5h with train) and the people are really friendly. The first hour we did steps and skating and i was pleasently surprised at the level of the skating on all the skaters Malin and Petronella and all the rest of the coaches have done a great job. Then we did more jumps and spins on the later hours. I did 8,5h on ice with a lunch break in the middle but it felt like it flew by because of all the entusiastic skater.
I was happy that they really trusted me and gave me an oppertunity to show what i could teach. I got to work with most of the skater and i hade a lot of fun in doing so and i hope they learned a lot as well.
The weekend was really inspiring, to see the passion from the skaters, the willingness to learn and how much the enjoyed skating. It felt like the scene from rocky 3 when he went with Appolo to the old gym to get him back to his roots and find his hunger for the sport. After a long summer of hard training its easy to forget why this is the greatest sport in the world!! =)
Now i will finaly start my normal season at home workin with my own fantastic skaters that i have really missed during the summer. Of course soon comes the first competition of this season and it feels like i am ready. BRING IT ON!!!!
