Gold Dance Achievement and Nelson Skating Club STARSkate Athlete 2014/15

Tomilin achieves gold in dance

Nelson Skating Club's Breanna Tomilin became the first skater in the club to achieve gold dances in many years.

The Nelson Skating Club has a lot to be proud of this spring. As well as one skater recently becoming a quadruple Gold test skater, recently Breanna Tomilin became the first skater in the club to achieve Gold dances in many years when she passed her fourth Gold dance, the Westminster Waltz.

“Breanna is a super dancer, and really improved her speed and power this season,” said dance coach Sarah Gower. “She has a real talent for being able to dance with the partner as one unit. As she was the first skater I had taken through all the Gold dances, she will have a special place in my coaching memories.”

Tomlin is considered an exceptional role model at the Nelson Skating Club, and was put forward for the Kootenay region STARSkate athlete award to recognize the excellence of her achievements and highlight her positive attitude, ability to overcome challenges and amazing sportsmanship.

The Nelson Skating Club is a non-profit society run by volunteers, dedicated to developing skaters for every sport including hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. For more information, visit the club website at nelsonfigureskatingclub.ca.
