Deeside Synchronised Skating Club competed at the British Championships on 19th and 20th January 2019 and had some fantastic victories! The Deeside teams that competed proved themselves to be amongst the best in the UK, taking the club to the next level.
The Angels outclassed many teams to gain a well-deserved score and a bronze medal, becoming the third highest ranked team at Elementary level in the UK!
Inspired and supported by their fellow Club mates, the Deelites took to the ice to secure a fantastic 2nd place victory, making them the second best team in the UK at Preliminary level!
Both medal winning routines can be viewed with coverage of the event on BBC i player with information and coverage of the events to date on the Deeside Synchronised Skating Club’s Facebook page.
Also competing at the British Championships were DISC, whose adult team performed a fantastically clean skate achieving a strong 4th in the adult category.
Their younger teams, Dreigiau Tan, improved on their earlier season scores to secure a great result of 5th place in the Preliminary category. Gwas Y Neidr also skated a wonderful routine with some fantastic individual performances, showcasing some fine footwork and balance in the Elementary category.
Head Coach Vicki Usherwood said: “I’m extremely proud of the Club and more so the achievements of the Angels and Deelites. All the girls have worked incredibly hard this season and their hard work has paid off which makes them a pleasure to coach! They demonstrate what this sport is: a group effort and team work”.
The club’s moto is #dreambelieveachieve which hopes to inspire all with a clear vision and aim.
