I was super nervous for the World Pole Championships this year because I didn’t compete in 2017. There were about 30 Novice (ages 10-14) competitors from all over the world. This year the Novice Champion’s score was 51.1 and my score was 50.1. The scores were so close at the top of the category and even though I was one point away from the top score I ended up in 5th place. I’m still very proud of how well I did because I didn’t have a coach and I choreographed the entire routine by myself and did this all on my own. I learned a lot and cannot wait for next year!
