Brady Tennell

Beginning of figure skating Brady Tennell Tennell was born on January 31, 1998 in Chicago and began to skate at the age of 2 years. She just doesn’t remember how she got into sports, but she remembers how she begged her mother to take her to training. Brady Tennell practiced figure skating at a local ice rink and never stopped training. Then she had a trainer Denis Myers, who has been with her for the past 10 years. The return of Brady Tennell to the ice Tennell won the junior national title in 2015. A few months later, doctors diagnosed a back injury and spent the rest of the summer tied to a bed with a spoke in the back. The next season, she tried to get in shape, but a back injury made itself felt and had to undergo treatment again. She tried to exercise so as not to strain her back, so that later it would be easier to return. She went through physical therapy and smoked bamboo. Results Brady Tennell in the 2017-2018 Olympic season In the summer of 2017, Brady Tennell won two small competitions, declaring itself in the Olympic season. She then participated in the Lombardi Trophy in Italy and finished fourth. She was invited to compete at the Skate America home Grand Prix, for her this is the first major event in the adult season. Tennell was very lucky that the Russian top skaters did not go to this competition, however, like the rest of the girls; she won a bronze medal and it came as a surprise – which created a lot of Olympic noise. Tannell won the U.S. national title in 2018 ahead of Mirai Nagasa (silver medalist) and Karen Chen (bronze medalist), see 2017-2018 US Figure Skating Championship results.

The music in the short program Tennell is taken from a popular Korean film. A friend recommended her music, and she “fell in love with her power.” Her coach called the choice of music “conscious choice” because the 2018 Olympic Games will be held in South Korea. She is the first single player in the United States to win a medal at the debut Grand Prix over the past ten years. Previous success was listed for Caroline Zhang in 2007. Best quotes “I see a discovery, but I do not get ahead of myself. I let [Olympic talk] go in the background. I know that she is, but I do not focus on her. ” – Tennell said in IceNetwork Olympic experience In 2018, Pyeongchang Olympics will be Tennell’s first Games. Brady Tennell outside the skating rink Skater goes to a private school to get a general education. She does not know what she would like to do in the future, but she is interested in science or medicine. “I just want to help people, help them improve their quality of life,” she said. Her mother works as a nurse and two younger brothers, Austin and Shane, play hockey.

At the Olympics, she will ride these programs.

American figure skater Brady Tennell spoke about an internship with famous Russian coach Alexei Mishin.

– Initially, I flew to France to work with my choreographer Benoit Rishot, and Mr. Mishin was just doing the training there. So I managed to kill two birds with one stone.

I am extremely grateful to Mishin for allowing me to join the training of his group and work out alongside other strong skaters, all the more so as everything went on in Courchevel, and it was incredibly beautiful there. It was very useful and unusual for me, because the training style was very different from the one I was used to. And I learned a lot.

– What was the main difference from your usual training?

– Firstly, at Mishin, I trained next to a large number of top-level skaters. There are few of them on my own ice rink. Secondly, I didn’t have to get to the arena by car, I could just walk – it was wonderful! At home, I spend a lot of time getting to the rink. Finally, in general, the atmosphere during training side by side with strong athletes and the general mood made this internship unique.

– Was it easier to constantly practice next to high-level skaters?

“Yes, definitely.” True, Elizabeth Tuktamysheva, unfortunately, was not there – she performed on the show, but we trained with European champion Sofia Samodurova, for example. I would even say that we talked with her the most. I don’t know how well other skaters speak English, but Sophia is fluent in the language. It’s a pity that since then we haven’t seen her – it depends on what competitions we are sent to. Crossing has not yet succeeded.

– I would like to undergo a summer internship with another Russian coach? For example, at Eteri Tutberidze, how did the Japanese Shoma Uno do this summer?

– Hard to say. I am sure that any such experience would be unique, very substantial, and I would learn a lot.
