Two-time Canadian national medalist Keegan Messing reflects on last year’s nationals and his approach to the new figure skating season, his new programs for 2019-20, the quad Lutz and battling an aging body while staying competitive.
Magdalena Cecilia Colledge (28 November 1920 – 12 April 2008) was a British figure skater. She was the 1936 Olympic silver medalist, the 1937 World Champion, the 1937–1939 European Champion, and a six-time (1935–1939, 1946) British national champion. Colledge is credited as being the inventor of the camel spin along with its catchfoot variation and the layback spin. Although not named after her, she was one of the first skaters who transitioned from a layback spin to a one hand Biellmann spin in her free programs. She also invented the one-foot axel jump, known as the “Colledge.”
