The 2023 Oceania and Pacific Cup Artistic Championships have arrived in Brisbane, Queensland, with the Championships beginning on Friday 18 August, and running through to Tuesday 22 August.
Taking place at Brisbane’s Mount Warren Sports Stadium, the five-day event will see approximately 70 skaters aged 9 - 60 years old from Australia, New Zealand, China, Taiwan, India, Japan, Brazil and USA compete in a number of events and disciplines.
Australian team coach Jodie Johnson-Garufo said the event would see the culmination of the best skaters from their respective nations come together.
“This event encompasses our top athletes in all age brackets from Minis to Masters. The event includes skaters who have represented Australia many times at similar events as well as our National representatives for World Cup and World Championships,” she said.
“It is exciting to have international athletes join us in Australia for this competition, an event that was first held in 1985 and has grown and branched out to include a wide range of athletes from all age brackets within our sport.
“The competition allows our skaters in the Cadet, Youth, Junior and Senior events the opportunity to improve their world ranking from their results. We look forward to seeing how they measure up against their international competitors.”
Competition gets underway on Friday with the Senior Precision event following the Opening Ceremony and March Past with all skaters from 5pm.
