The Compass - - PORTHTE -

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.
