After winning the Blackburn Arena artistic ice-skating competition in July, Juliet was invited to compete at the National Artistic final in Milton Keynes at the weekend.
Juliet was skating in the level 5-7 category against the 13 other winners from Planet Ice rinks around the country. Each competitor had to skate a 1 minute routine to their own choice of music that had to include set elements which they were marked on, along with marks for artistic impression, entertainment value, props and costume. Juliet had been working with her brilliant coach on her routine since April.
Juliet skated to Steps “5,6,7,8” and gave an amazing performance as a cowgirl which was thoroughly enjoyed by the crowd and the judges (one judge was Yebin Mok -professional skater from Dancing on Ice!)
We were absolutely delighted to find out that Juliet won the competition and is now the number 1 artistic skater in her category in England! Yee haw!!
