First Synchro Competition of the year
This weekend in Lyon our club’s two synchronised skating teams took part in the Coupe Confluence. The Perce Neige and Cosmiques began their season with the second qualifying round of the French championships on Saturday 9th February. In their first competition of the season our adults took first place and our Perce Neige team came 9thin their Mixed Age category.
“We are really proud of how both our teams have progressed in this new discipline.” say Catherine and Clémence Chamel, the club’s coaches. “Their behaviour was exceptional and I’d like to congratulate them on their hard work and great team spirit. Each year they rise to the challenge, despite finding themselves competing against teams that specialise in this discipline. Well done to you all.”
The weekend is almost here and that means another competition for our skaters. On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd February they will be taking part in the Coupe des Alpes in Grenoble, an Auvergne Rhônes Alpes Ligue regional competition.
It will be a challenging competition given the large numbers of competitors in each category. The aim for our young sportswomen will be to focus on perfecting their routines as well as improving their personal scores.
We wish you all good luck.
It was a double competition weekend for our skaters. At the Tournoi de France in Caen Meije Herry and Molly Voyer presented their programmes and did Chamonix proud. Well done to Meije who came 4th in the N2 poussin category and to Molly who came 5th in Novice N2. They both delivered marked improvements to their overall scores as well as demonstrating how much they have progressed.
The same weekend Sacha Bozon, Melle Lacassagne, Vanel, Lily Prach, Anne Marie Wilson, Lucia Ziliotto, Corentine Mesnil and Fuka Narakmura were all on the ice competing at the Inter Regional Tournament in Valence. They all scored well in their categories where they had the challenge of competing against a high number of other competitors.
In the R1 Minime category Anne-Marie Wilson took 12th place, Maelle Lacassagne 14th place, Sacha Bozon 15th, Lily Prach 17th and Lucia Ziliotto 25th.
In the N3 Minime category Corentine Mesnil finished in 15th place and in the N3 Novice cateogry Fuka Nakamura came in 17th.
Well done to you all.
