IW synchronized skating team the Wight Jewels won the junior event at the IJS Deeside & Ice Skate Wales Welsh Championships, held on 19 to 22 October 2010.
With requirements for the season changing so that fewer elements are performed in both the short and the long programmes, overall scores this year are lower. Wight Jewels ended up almost 10 points clear of Nottingham Icicles, with 59.06 in total against 49.22. The change in the number of elements means that IJS scores this year are not comparable with IJS scores for last year.
In the novice men’s event, Archie Bicknell finished third, with a total of 52.30. Maggie Read finished 24th in the junior ladies with a score of 37.76.
Former IW skater Charlotte Aiken, with partner Josh Whidborne, both of whom now skate for Deeside, finished first in the junior dance event.
