Agnes Zawadzki: “My goal is to improve as a skater”

By Vladislav Luchianov

Usually the word “debutante” people associate with the word “diffidence”. But the 2010 U.S. Junior national champion, 2010 World Junior silver and 2011 bronze medalist Agnes Zawadzki in her first senior season showed the opposite.

Tom Zakrajsek’s young talent finished 6th at her debut event at the Skate Canada and 4th at the Cup of Russia. Zawadzki made her senior national debut at the 2011 U.S. Championships in Greensboro. She placed fourth in both the short and free skate program to claim the pewter medal.

Senior’s skating beginner demonstrated a rather strong level of skating in her debut season among well-known world skaters. Typically, the first year of performances among eminent skaters is not easy for former juniors. But Agnes took the ice at the Skate Canada and at the Cup of Russia with confidence.

At the same manner, confidently, she skated her short program at the 2011 U.S. Nationals. Unfortunately, not everything turned out well with her free skating, but the American figure skater is determined to fix it during a preparation for the next season.

Agnes Zawadzki has a talent and a big desire to work hard. She needs only to gain experience.
