With great excitement, the 2015 World Figure Championship announces that Olympian Sandy Lenz-Jackson will be traveling to Lake Placid to compete in the inaugural World Figure Championship Ladies' event that will decide the new World Figure Championship Title.
Please enjoy Sandy Lenz-Jackson's statement below.
It will be particularly special to me, being back in Lake Placid where my childhood dream came true as I represented the United States at the 1980 Olympics. My hope will be, that I can be part of the movement to pass on the foundation of figure skating....school figures. I never fully appreciated their benefit until I started coaching. The amount of time and effort it has taken to try to get the results from skaters, without that fundamental understanding of balance, axis, rotation, lean, posture, foot action, foot pressure, etc, etc, etc....has been a frustration of mine for years!
Figures are back and I'm IN!
