|Annie Katarina Boyd|
How I started skating?: When I was 2, I would watch skating on television and pretend that I was skating on my hardwood floor. My mom finally signed me up for lessons when I was 5. That summer, I attended a camp called GreatSkates, where I met my coach, Miss Gina, and began taking private lessons from her.
How often do you skate?: Five days a week
Coaches: Gina Shinn, Ron Ludington, Jeff Merica and Karen Ludington
Favorite jumps/moves: Double Axel, layback spin, double loop, double loop combination
Goals: To compete at the senior level
Favorite skater: Kimmie Meissner
Favorite skating moments When two of my coaches promised me a very special reward for landing my double Axel for the first time. They didn't think I would really do it. I shocked them both by landing it, and they had to give me the reward.
What else you should know about me: I also play softball and I'm a straight-A student. I have a brother, Jonathan, and a sister, Lyndsay. When I am not at the rink, I am always with my best friend, Nicole.
