Sixteen artistic skaters have recently returned from the World Artistic Rollerskating Championships which was held in Taipei, Taiwan in November.
The team consisted of 6 Junior skaters, 2 Senior skaters and a Small Show Team.
Skaters were selected based upon their perfomances and results at the 2013 National Championships held in Perth.
With only four weeks between the end of the National Championships and the beginning of the World Championships, it certainly added an extra dimension to preparation and organisation.
Results were as follows:
• Junior ladies figures – Allira Hanczakowski 17th
• Junior ladies freeskate – Sarah Butler 14th
• Junior mens freeskate – Robert Karp 13th
• Junior ladies solo dance – Melanie Gollagher 12th, Alizanne Finnemore 16th
• Junior mens solo dance – William Andrewartha 7th
• Senior ladies solo dance - Rachel Tonkin 13th, Teresa Chittick 14th
• Small Show Groups – Platinum 8th
Congratulations to all skaters for a fantastic effort throughout the Championships! Bring on Reus, Spain for 2014!
