Ryan Jahnke won the bronze medal at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships in 2003. He was known for being able to do the Tano Triple Lutz, doing creative spins, and for being an elegant skater. He now coaches figure skating in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Ryan says the following about these photos:
- "These photos make me smile when I see them. I miss how all consuming a great performance feels. My best performances were when my body, mind, and emotions were all working in perfect harmony to complete the performance. There is nothing in everyday life that can match that. I always thought of it as a performance, not a competition."
