ICE SKATINGIW SKATERS were celebrating again after success at the annual Bracknell open competition, with medals across all age groups and skill levels.
The weekend got off to a great start when the IW Ice Dance and Figure Skating Club’s pairs’ duo Carol and Steve Taverner struck gold in the adult section, to their routine to music by the Glenn Miller Band.
Carol then went on to gain silver for her solo performance in the silver ladies’ level.
Six young members, some of them in their first mainland competition, achieved outstanding results.
Toni Delap, nine, started the day off brilliantly skating to Anastasia, winning gold in the beginner girls’ eight to nine years category, beating off competition from nine other skaters.
Olivia Lacey, ten, then snatched a bronze in the beginner ladies’ ten to 11 years category, with her routine to The Goonies.
For the boys, Miles Grist, 11, won gold in the men’s level two section, his first outing at this level, skating to Feeling Good by Muse.
Also representing the IW were Lauren Wood, nine, making her debut in beginner girls’ eight to nine, Hannah Barfoot, 16 in ladies’ level 1 aged 12 and over, and Keelin Scholes, 16, in the ladies’ level 3 aged 13 and over.
All three skated brilliantly and earned valuable experience.
