She starts with a double axel, goes beyond her technical success, from a triple loop to a triple salchow, and expresses the feeling of ‘flowing on ice’.

Her 14-year-old junior high school student Jia Shin beat all her older sisters to win her national tryout.

I started figure skating at the age of 7, and it was ‘fun’ that led me to the path of becoming an athlete.
