15-Year-Old Isabeau Levito’s Winning Figure Skating Routine

Athletes spend countless hours in the gym, in the ring or on the ice practicing and perfecting their craft. An athlete's relentless pursuit and tenacious dedication aimed at their goal are beyond admirable. One young athlete recently experienced the fruits of all her labor.

Isabeau Levito is a United States figure skating champion. The athlete from New Jersey won the title with a near-flawless routine. To make her new distinction even more impressive, Isabeau is only 15 years old! 

The clip posted to YouTube shows the teenager skating to victory during her stunning, title-winning routine. Isabeau skates around on the ice with elegance, grace and tons of athleticism and strength.

Isabeau’s routine consisted of jumps, spins and several other mind-blowing moves that displayed both her technical skating ability as well as her artistry.

The television commentators were rightly stunned throughout her routine.

“Oh, these jumps are gorgeous!” one of them said.

At the end of her routine, that same commentator summed up Isabeau’s routine perfectly.

“That was a gold-medal skate if I ever saw one,” the commentator said. “Perfection. Precision. She takes her jumping passes with the precision of a heart surgeon but then she floats around like a ballerina. It’s the perfect mix that you want in figure skating.”

Following her big win, Isabeau mentioned that she was pleased with how she reacted during a taut, tense moment.

“I was just so proud of myself for staying so calm and staying so focused, doing exactly what I aimed to do,” she said, according to CNN. “I’m ready to start bouncing off the walls.”

This teenager has a bright future in the world of competitive figure skating. The Olympics and possibly several medals are likely in this young woman’s future. 

Congrats, Isabeau!
