Ice Skating: Asian Open Figure Skating Trophy 2022

Post-secondary ice skater Pagiel Sng bounced back from injury to compete in the Asian Open Figure Skating Trophy 2022 held in Indonesia from 7 to 9 December 2022. Despite the short runway to prepare for the competition, Pagiel gave it his all and managed to bag 3rd position.

“I feel a bit disappointed with my performance because I know I am capable of much more. However, being injured caused me to be off the ice for 3 weeks and I only had a week of preparation and training before I flew off for the competition. So, I think 3rd overall isn’t too bad. I’m looking forward to the International Skating Union (ISU) Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Colorado Springs, United States next year,” said the optimistic Pagiel Sng.
