March 22-28 skating worlds are in Stockholm, and Emily Bausback says: 'I know we wouldn’t be going if it wasn’t safe. I believe that.'
Bausback, who was the 2020 national champion, had to go through monitoring before landing her worlds spot, which meant she had to skate her short program at Scotia Barn last week for Slipchuk and other Skate Canada officials before getting word that she was getting a chance to advance to Sweden. There’s no word on how many different skaters went through something similar.
Bausback had been a modest eighth at the Skate Canada Challenge, which was held virtually in January. The 2021 nationals were slated for Feb. 8-14 at the University of B.C. but were cancelled.
“I felt that my monitoring went really well,” Bausback said. “I was able to show off all my triple-triple combinations. I had a good feeling I was going to be a strong contender for one of the spots.”
