Very exciting news for a local skating team!
The Northbrook Team Elite Jr synchronized figure skating squad is headed to Milan, Italy, this Sunday where they'll represent the United States in competition!
The team is thrilled to represent our country in the competition, and they've been working for their entire lives for this moment!
"It's a complete dream come true," said team member Ellie Lim in a recent interview. "We've all been working for it ever since we started our synchro careers. And it's literally surreal and I can't believe the time has come to go overseas and represent the United States in Italy."
Their coach, Danielle Ostrower, couldn't be prouder of the team. "They're amazing. I love each and every one of them so much. Good day, bad day they are working together, lifting each other up, I feel like I'm not coaching them. It feels like we're working as a team. They're funny, tons of energy, lots of character. At the end of the day they're still teenage girls and they make me laugh all of the time," she told ABC7.
GOOD LUCK! We'll all be rooting for you!
