JOURNALING: 27 year old Wesley Campbell has competed at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships at the senior level six of the past nine years. Only once did he crack the top ten when he finished 7th in 2008. There were 20 men competing at the senior level this year. Going into the long program on 1/27/13, Wesley was in 20th place after his short “Bolero” with a triple lutz, failed combo, and only a double Axel. Who could have guessed that his long program to Franz Schubert’s “Ave Maria” would be one of the highlights of the men’s free skate that Sunday afternoon. Skating 4th, Wesley put on a beautiful show. Sure, there were no quads, and the Axel was again only a double, but there were six clean jumping passes, including three combos. And there was artistry and grace. He topped his personal best score by 13 points. And, as he stood center ice taking his bows, obviously overwhelmed and beyond happy, there was the first and only really spontaneous standing ovation of the entire event.
