The Wrangler: How long have you been skating for?

Ghandour: I have been skating for a little under a year.

The Wrangler: How did your inspiration to skate start?

Ghandour: My inspiration started after I watched the 2018 Winter Olympics. Ever since watching the amazing performances, my desire to begin skating instantly increased and I began as soon as I could.

The Wrangler: What made you realize you wanted to become better at skating?

Ghandour: I wanted to become better at skating; since I started very late, I did not have the advantage that the young girls had, so I decided to work even harder to try to reach their level.

The Wrangler: How difficult is it to skate and learn elements?

Ghandour: Every person is different, some take years to learn something, some can master it in a few months. For me, I am able to learn and master elements relatively quickly.

The Wrangler: What’s your favorite thing to do on the ice?

Ghandour: My favorite thing to do on the ice is jumps. One of my favorite jumps is the ‘Lutz’.

The Wrangler: Does falling on the ice hurt?

Ghandour: Yes, a lot.

The Wrangler: Have you ever injured yourself from falling?

Ghandour: I sprained my ankle May of 2018, but that was my only major, other than that I’m usually always sporting bruised knees and blisters.

The Wrangler: How did you get back up and just keep going?

Ghandour: When I sprained my ankle I was not able to get up and keep going, but any other time I fall and maybe bruise my knee or elbow, I just get up and keep going because it’s just one of those countless falls I take.

The Wrangler: Would you ever consider competing in figure skating?

Ghandour: I would love to compete in figure skating, and I have a program that I am working on that I will hopefully compete with in October.
