Favourite ice rink?

Thialf for sure! Most consistent rink in the world in my opinion.

Most memorable skating moment

The best moment was probably my 1500m personal record that I skated three years ago as an A junior. It was a regular Saturday morning, and there was no pressure at all. Suddenly, I shaved two seconds off my personal record right then and there.
