The senior event has attracted number of the top teams in synchronized skating, including Helsinki Rockettes, Marigold Ice Unity, Nexxice and Paradise. Toughing it out with them will be Australia’s Team Nova, who include former Wight Jewel Beth Howarth. Beth is, as far as iowskaters can tell, the only Brit and Isle of Wight connection competing at the event.
