Win­ter Olympic win­ners in Perth

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

THREE Win­ter Olympians swept into Perth over the week­end.

Cham­pion Cana­dian pair Mea­gan Duhamel and Eric Rad­ford were in town to host an ice skat­ing camp for lo­cal ath­letes at the Cock­burn Ice Arena (CIA) in Bi­bra Lake.

The duo, who won a gold and a bronze dur­ing the re­cent games in South Korea, also wowed a

FOOT­BALL packed arena with two stun­ning per­for­mances.

One rou­tine on Satur­day night was skated to Billy Joel’s hit Pi­ano Man.

With a lack of pairs skaters in WA, CIA gen­eral man­ager Ca­lan­dra Bar­rett said the au­di­ence was treated to some­thing very spe­cial.

“The crowd was buzzing and loved them. They were very en­ter­tain­ing,” she said.

“It is a priv­i­lege for our skaters to have ac­cess to such in­spi­ra­tional and pos­i­tive role mod­els.”

Aus­tralian Win­ter Olympian Kailani Craine also vis­ited the arena to per­form on Satur­day.

Craine fin­ished 17th at the re­cent games.

Duhamel and Rad­ford are in Perth un­til Tues­day.

Erin Phillips cel­e­brates a goal in Ade­laide’s AFLW win over the Fre­man­tle Dock­ers.
