Estrada wins her third gold medal at U.S. National Synchronized Skating Championships
Emma Estrada didn’t expect to win her third consecutive National Championship Gold medal at the February 2019 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships held in Michigan.
“We kind of just went into the competition wanting to skate our best,” said Estrada. “When we found out we won, it was unreal for a while.”
Estrada, a 17-year-old senior at St. Francis Prep in Fresh Meadows, won her third consecutive gold medal with her teammates on The Skyliners Synchronized Skating Team, established in 2001 by a group of parents who wanted to create the most competitive synchronized skating club in the tri-state area.
The Skyliners Skating Team capped its 2018-19 season with history-making results and five national medals at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, MI, for three days of intense competition. Three Skyliners qualifying lines — Junior, Novice and Juvenile — won National Championship Gold Medals; the Intermediate line won Bronze; and the Senior line won Silver.
