Revelstoke figure skaters showcased their skills in the recent Okanagan Interclub Figure Skating Competition. The skaters won a total of nine medals in ranked events and delivered one gold, five silver, and two bronze-rated performances during assessed events.

“All our skaters worked very hard to prepare for this competition,” said Head Coach Nina Greschner. “I am very proud of them for their dedication and hard work that allowed them to reach their goals.”

A total of 13 senior, intermediate, and primary skaters from Revelstoke competed during the three-day event in West Kelowna that wrapped up on November 30, 2014.

“More and more of our Revelstoke skaters are participating in competitions.” said Greschner. “This is the largest group of skaters from Revelstoke that have ever competed in an event, showing that even small communities can successfully develop young skaters.”
