    Hi, I'm Elisa and I've been a single skater discontinuously for many years. In 2013, I discovered synchronized skating and I initially thought that it was really strange seeing 16 people skating together! The next year at my home rink I was asked to try this discipline and so my synchro career began… Firstly I was really scared by having other people attached to me (my first wheel? I shouted like a damsel in distress!! XD), but then I've come to understand the passion and the hard work needed to create a synchro program and now I love the sport very much. Within my team I found a second family and I'm happy whenever I can go and skate with them! In the future I hope to be able to pass on the passion by becoming a coach.

    What does synchronized skating mean to you?

    Different souls combining together to create one big heart.  —  Elisa Parini
