Gosport skater and member of the IW synchro teams Amy World was 1st in the Level 3 Ladies, age 11 and under, 4th in the Exhibition class for level 4 and under age 11 and under, and 1st in the 2s to 4s Exhibition class with Caine Jerone.
All results are now corrected and confirmed, having been compared with the official results. The class titles now link to the appropriate official results.
Basingstoke Opens traditionally attract large group sizes. Charlotte Chapman’s third place at level 4, for example, was attained in a group of 17 skaters, as was Sophie-Rose Broadley-Darby’s 2nd place in the beginners age 14 and over. While a podium place in any competition is an achievement, obtaining one in a large field of skaters is particularly notable.
