Despite the long break from competing due to the pandemic, the skaters were determined to succeed! The athletes are thankful for the overwhelming support from their coaches, family, and friends that encouraged them and witnessed their victories. The skaters won an impressive total of eleven medals across twelve events, including six gold, three silver, and two bronze medals. They worked hard for months leading up to the competition, and their triumph is a testament to their skill and dedication. The Winchester Skating Club is proud of their athletes’ achievements and looks forward to continuing their success in future competitions.
