    What a debut! She must be very pleased. So happy for her. Talent certainly runs in their family.

    Loena Hendrickx, the younger sister of men's competitor Jorik Hendrickx, was seventh (172.71) in her first Europeans. Despite battling pain in her foot, the 17-year-old was able to show a solid program, but she missed a triple flip in the long.

    "I have even worse pain in my heel than after the short program," revealed the 2017 Belgian national champion. "It is just amazing that I managed my performance so well despite this complication. I am so happy for that, even if there were some small mistakes in the first and second part. I was very motivated."

    Hendrickx also thanked her brother who competed earlier this morning, placing fifth.

    "I was watching his performance and will support him tomorrow again," she said. "I can say my first European championship was a success. I have never seen so many people on the stands and such amazing atmosphere."

    The skater went on to explain that she does not get much financial support. "The travelling is very complicated for me; my parents could not come here with us as it was too expensive. I had to pay all the expenses by myself and it will be the same at the world championships. For example, I got an invitation for the Grand Prix in Russia, but I could not go. It was just too expensive. I hope this will change."
    I'm sad to learn about the lack of financial support I hope her success at Euros will change her situation.

    Oh that's just crazy!

    I thought for GPs, Euros, and Worlds, though, the host federation pays most expenses? Or did I make that up? I know for Senior Bs it's the skater's fed that pays (or evidently the skater if they fed refuses) but I didn't think that was true of bigger competitions.

    Good fluidity on the ice and good attitude! I can see from her statistics that she is more of a long program skater than a short. ( Like Ashley Wagner for example). If she could improve her short by 10 points, she could be a contender in the future.

    More information about the lack of financial support in Belgium:

    Hendrickx emphasis artistic approach to skating
    Belgian champion enjoys artistry of sport, working with sister Loena


    Icenetwork: Your younger sister, Loena, began her first senior season with very good results, including a seventh-place finish in Ostrava. Does she gather inspiration from her brother?

    Hendrickx: Normally, we would have skated together at Euros last year, but Loena got a major injury on her spine and was out for six months. We weren't sure she would come back to skating at all. Talents in Belgian figure skating don't get any support, so we had to support everything by ourselves, including the training and all things related to preparation and participation at the 2017 Europeans. I took care of funds, tried to find sponsors, organized special meetings and so on.

    I think it's a very positive thing that we can train together. Skating in Belgium is very lonely, so it doesn't hurt to have company on the ice. We take care of each other very much.

    Icenetwork: As the older brother, you most likely give her some suggestions and advice. How has that been received?

    Hendrickx: When she was younger, I tried to be very involved. Now I'm less involved, as I have to focus on myself once we take the ice. Besides being her "manager," I try to help her out with technical problems or her mental preparation. She is now more mature and deals better with my feedback than in the past.

    Icenetwork: You said that in Belgium there is no support for skating talents. How do athletes deal with this issue?

    Hendrickx: Our federation doesn't have operational resources from the government. Volunteers keep our federation alive. Therefore, Belgian figure skaters don't receive any financial support. Only when you reach the Olympic level will you receive funds from the government, but just as an individual.

    As I already said, until now my sister, Loena, financed everything on her own. A lot of Belgian talent disappears because of this. It's very hard to develop Belgian figure skating in general, but some individuals will survive and stand out like my sister and I. We took action, started crowdfunding and other similar activities, and worked really hard on the ice. A lot of skaters on our level in the world don't have to worry about money, but we do.
