Morgan Docwra, aged seven, entered the tots category for skaters up to seven years. She performed two compulsory figures achieving third place. She then performed a nice two minute free skating routine to be placed second giving her a combined bronze medal for both events. Morgan also performed a glide waltz and Olympic foxtrot to be placed third overall.

Becky Allen, aged nine, competed in the mini category for skaters aged eight and nine years. She performed a good free programme including all the required elements to win a bronze medal.

She also entered the solo dance event, skating three compulsory dances to finish in sixth place.

Becky has been selected to represent Great Britain in a competition in Croatia in June.

The skaters would like to thank Retroskate, Great Yarmouth, Denes High, Lowestoft and North Walsham High School for the use of their facilities. Beginner/advanced classes are held at all three venues. For more information please visit websites www.retroskate.net www.waveneyrsc.co.uk and www.nwalshamrsc.com
