Medal haul for Nelson figure skaters

Nelson Figure Skating Club notches strong performances in Rossland.

It was a great weekend on the ice in Rossland.

Members of the Nelson Figure Skating Club notched all around strong performances last weekend at the West Kootenay Invitational Competition.

The event proved to be a good test for the team. With a new coaching model, several veteran skaters returning from injuries and others skaters just beginning their competition careers, the Nelson club is currently in rebuilding mode.

“I felt our skaters performed their programs very well and had a lot of fun,” said coach Yoshie Measures.

“I saw a lot of smiles from our skaters coming off the ice and was pleased with the encouragement the rest of the Nelson skaters gave to those who were performing.”

The weekend competition consisted of High Tests held on Friday afternoon, Freeskate programs on  Saturday with Dance and Elements tests held on Sunday.

The Skaters will be back in competitive action soon as the West Kootenay Regional Championships take place Janury 31 to February 2 in Beaver Valley.
