The Lexettes arrived in Zagreb around noon today, after a quick stop in Munich for a connecting flight. Driving through the city of Zagreb brought back a lot of memories for returning skaters who competed at Junior Worlds last year. New skaters were looking forward to seeing the city and going to the competition rink/hotel for the first time. After a quick lunch at the hotel, we rested and prepared for our first practice. It was beneficial to be able to skate on the competition ice, and to get adjusted to the rink size, which is different than our usual practice rink. We had a good practice, and we were overall very content with how we skated, despite being tired and jet lagged. After practice, we went to a delicious pizzeria where we enjoyed pizza, pasta and salads. The Lexettes are very excited to be in Zagreb, and we cannot wait to showcase our programs later this week! Now we are off to sleep, as we have a 6am practice in the morning!
