Learning her Axel

She is learning her Axel. The Axel jump is considered to be one of the most difficult jumps in figure skating because of the required strength and the need to rotate quickly. First there is off-ice strength training, then she practices with the safety harness on ice. Once she she masters both of these she will be allowed to try it on the ice without the safety of the harness.
