The Conception Bay North Skating Club put on an impressive display at a recent event in Mount Pearl, returning home with multiple medals.
The club, which trains in Bay Roberts and Harbour Grace, won a silver and bronze medal at the 2011 Atlantic Regional Synchro- nized Skating Championships on Jan. 29.
The Ice Gems, competing in the beginner 2 category, missed winning a gold medal by 0.01 points, settling for the silver medal as a result.
In the beginner 1 category, the Ice Sparkles won a bronze medal.
Synchronized skating is a team competition involving large groups of figure skaters performing routines. It emphasizes precise formations and timing.
The skaters will be seen locally on April 10 as part of the annual ice show at S. W. Moores Memorial Stadium in Harbour Grace.
