Young Yoonmi Lehmann Wins Swiss Championship

Yoonmi Lehmann, age 12, won the Swiss Figure Skating Championship this past Saturday. Her beautiful and flawless rendition of the “Type Writer” by Leroy Aderson earned scores of 5 in execution and interpretation in the short program.

In Sunday`s long program, with the pressures of winning a championship in front of her, she skated a near flawless program to music by Joachim Rodrigo. Her interpretation was deemed “stunning” by the judges. Once again, the judges awarded some 5`s in skating, interpretation and execution.

This is Yoonmi`s eighth win of the season in as many competitions. At age 12, she has shown an undeniable passion and confidence which permits her to glide with a disconcerting ease. The future is bright for figure skating`s next “superstar”
