Chelsea Nicole Allen wins first place at SCOSNJ

Chelsea Nicole Allen, of Penndel, competed last month at the Skating Club of Southern New Jersey (SCOSNJ) at the Pre-Juvenile level and placed first out of eight skaters. Representing the Glissad Skating Club of Hamilton, NJ, she recently graduated fifth grade at the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School and will be competing throughout the summer.

Her goal is to compete this summer at the Juvenile level and go to the North Atlantic Regional Competition this fall.

Chelsea Nicole is pictured performing the “Biellmann Spin.” The Biellmann spin is an upright figure skating spin in which the skater executes a one-foot spin while holding the other foot extended over and behind the head, forming a teardrop shape with the body. The spin has also been referred to as a “tulip on a turn-table” due to the shape formed by the torso and leg. The position requires very great flexibility and spinning ability, and is almost always performed by women.
