Amelia, Year 9 – Ice Skating update

Amelia, Ice skatingAmelia (Year 9) has an Ice Dance skating partner, Oliver (AGSB Year 9).  Recently they achieved 2nd place overall at a competition at Lee Valley.  Even better, last week they took individual and overall gold in the Bracknell IJS Qualifier.  This has resulted in their current GB ranking at Basic Novice level improving to 3rd in the UK.  See below the press release from Silver Blades Widnes following the  Lee Valley competition.  Their Bracknell performance has resulted in them being invited to join the Great Britain Development Squad. This is basically the group of skaters who receive additional input and training from NISA (National Ice Skating association) so they can progress and represent GB at international level.Amelia-Ice-skating-y9-press
