Reynolds breakthrough no overnight success
“I’m slowly but surely getting there. It’s been a very long process. When I entered seniors, I had the jumps but really I didn’t have much else. So it’s been a process to get the skating skills and the performance up to where it is today, but I still need quite a bit of improvement — especially competing against Patrick, who is probably the best skater in the world right now in terms of skating quality, it’s kind of hard to match that.

“So my goal is to be close enough to him where I can be competitive with the advantage I have technically, and this year I’ve been able to show that I’m closer than ever now.”
