Season’s last competition golden for Nelson skater

A small contingent of Nelson Skating Club skaters went to Kelowna to compete at the annual Super SeriesSTARSkate Final.

Isabella Kroker Kimber won the gold medal in STAR 4 O13 Girls

A small contingent of Nelson Skating Club skaters went to Kelowna to compete at the annual Super SeriesSTARSkate Final, which pits STARSkaters from all over BC against each other.

Unfortunately the Nelson team suffered a number of injuries and ills which meant that only one skater, Isabella Kroker Kimber, was able to compete. A few weeks before, skater Helena Keating suffered a bad fall off a spin entrance leading to a concussion and she has not been cleared to skate again. Just prior to the event, Mallory Pinske injured her knee and Hannah Corven became ill.

The club’s luck changed at the competition, where Kimber, with all her teammates supporting her from the bench,won the gold medal in her STAR 4 O13 Girls group. She skated an elegant program to the Corpse Bride soundtrack and landed a big clean axel jump right in front of the judges. Following up with the introductory interpretive event, she received a silver rating for her interpretive program to Coldplay’s “Sky Full of Stars.”

In other club news, the spring session of CANSkate is now open for registration. Call Jane Macleod at 250-352-6510 to register for the five-week program. The spring session ends with the annual ice show on Saturday, April 30, with all skaters performing.
