IW senior team Wight Jewels are in action this weekend at the Wales and West Synchronized Skating Competition in Cardiff on 5 to 6 November 2016. A last-minute training injury in Gosport on Friday night, involving a 2am visit to A&E by Beth Howarth for treatment for a dislocated shoulder, mean the alternates see action this weekend.
Update: Wight Jewels were third overall, scoring 19.53 in the short (2 falls) and 44.86 in the free (also 2 falls), for a total of 64.39. Zariba of Aberdeen won with 76.31 and Spirit of Wales & West were second with 74.88. Considering the alternates were slotted in at the last minute because of Beth Howarth’s injury, and that the falls result in an overall deduction of -4 before even considering their effect on the grade of execution of elements, the Jewels should certainly be in the mix come the British Championships in January.
