This is just a quick entry to thank ASDA and Sportsaid so much for giving me the topup grant of Â£300. It’ll help with my training so much and help me fulfill so much more in the coming year. Thankyou for everything you have done for me in this past year. I have enjoyed everything I have done involving both sportsaid/ASDA.
So i’ve got a busy next few weeks ahead of me! Iam going into my Asda Store tomorrow, to give a presentation about my skating and tell the store about there Asda Athlete.
I also have an IJS national competition in Deeside, Wales on Thursday 6th of October and Friday 7th of October. This is a qualifier competition for the British Championships in November. This would be to qualify for the junior category in the British. I am very excited for this competition and working really hard in the last few training sessions I have left before I leave for Desside.
Will post a new blog of my results soon:D
So this week i spent my weekend in Aberdeen. I was there for a club international to compete in the Junior Pairs section. It was my first pairs competition as a Junior Pair. Me and my partner went out and skated our short at 11 o’clock on friday morning. We skated basically clean with only one mistake, which was i fell on the side by side jumps. Our points came up and for the short we got 20 points, we were sitting 10 points ahead of the couple in 2nd place. On saturday morning we skated our long programme at 9 o clock. It was almost clean with a few minor errors. For this programme we scored 37 points, giving us a total score of 57. This put us in the lead by 30 points. We were both very happy with our programmes over the weekend and as we won the competition we also won the title of Scottish Junior Pair Champions. I really enjoyed the weekend.
wow! my last two weeks have been great! iam just back from toronto, Canada. I was there with my skating partner Lewis Gibson. We went there for a week long training camp with the top pairs and solo coaches in Canada and throughout the world. Skating alongside former olympic competitors aswell. We spent one full week with skating nonstop from around 8am to 6pm everyday. It was very intense, but amazing. I learnt so much while i was there and am now excited to be home to put all that hardwork into practice.I loved and hope to go back there again next year!
