A group of 11 Waveney Roller Skating Club members travelled to Kettering to compete in the FARS figures and free national competition.
With large entries in the groups at last month’s contest, the Waveney skaters returned home with two golds, two silvers and a bronze medal which was hailed by club coaches as “a great achievement.”
Competing in the first event on the Saturday, the tots girls figures competition, Libby Jones gained herself a pleasing second place.
In the novice group, Lewis Jones finished ninth. Next came the Espoir girls figures with Georgia Boyd finishing in fifth place.
The Elementary figures were next up, with Jake Leader gaining sixth place, Caitlin Forster was seventh, Ella Moore ninth and Sophie Franks 12th.
Brooke Endticknap then finished in a fine third place in prelim figures, with Charlotte Harker fourth in Cadet ladies.
In the Interbronze figures the first gold medal of the day saw Morgan Docwra triumph.
After all the figures events came the free skating. Due to the large entries the Novice skaters were split up by age groups.
In the novice first group, Elle Darlow finished in ninth place. In the second group Lewis secured the club’s second gold medal and in the third novice group Sophie Franks took eighth place.
In the Novice 15 years and above category, Caitlin Forster was placed 15th. Following the novice groups, the Elementary groups competed, with Ella Moore finishing in fifth place.
