2024 National Artistic Championships set to begin this weekend

The 2024 National Artistic Championships have arrived in Sydney, with the Championships getting underway on Sunday 7 July, and running through to Friday 12 July.

Australia’s best Artistic skaters will gather at the Whitlam Leisure Centre, Liverpool with age groups from Tots all the way through to Advanced Masters competing for national glory.

The competition will see more than 250 skaters perform with over 100 coaches, officials and volunteers supporting from the sideline. 

Among the hundreds of competitors will be the recently crowned Oceania Champions, Andrew Beattie and Sophia Garufo performing in the Solo Dance. 

Contesting the Senior Ladies Freeskating, Solo dance, and Figures, Zara Davis shares she is looking forward to competing in her home state.

"It’s exciting that this year I am able to compete at Nationals in my home state and all 3 of my grandparents are able to come and cheer me on," said Davis.

"I can’t wait to see all my skating friends from around Australia and cheer for them as well."

The Championships will also feature Australia's best Freeskating, otherwise known as Figure Skating, where the athletes combine jumps, spins and intricate skating skills in an energetic performance to music, demonstrating impressive agility on skates. 

"I’m looking forward to creating a stronger bond with my friends from other states and I hope to have a strong skate with no regrets," said the current Cadet Freeskating Oceania Champion, Antonia Aristidis (SA).

The 2024 National Artistic Championships will begin with official practice on Saturday 6 July before  the Opening Ceremony and parade of competitors from 6:30pm on Sunday 7 July at the Whitlam Leisure Centre, Liverpool.
