Gabriella S Inline Skating Success

Following on from her success at the 2017 World Championships, in Dijon, Gabriella S (Year 11) took part in the 8th World Inline Skating Championships in Cork, Ireland. This year, she competed in the Elite Solo Ice Dance Junior Division (i.e Division 1) having progressed from the 4th Division Junior Ladies and had to skate two programmes – the first contained two compulsory pattern dances – the Starlight Waltz and the Paso Doble (both dances were based on traditional ballroom dances but were, of course, skated on wheels!). Her second programme was a free dance and she chose to skate to ‘You Raise Me Up’ by Westlife.

Having moved up so many divisions, Gabriella fought off some strong competition not only securing a huge increase to her personal best (nearly doubling the score she got when she won Gold in Madrid a couple of months ago) but also finishing in 4th place overall.

Well done Gabriella!
