Aimee Carrington-Fryer, 11 from Bromley began skating at the age of five after a day out with a friend. Now, six years later, her hard work has paid off as she won the Juvenile Solo Ladies bronze medal at the British Solo Ice Dance Championships in Sheffield.
Carrington-Fryer fits her skating around school, getting up at 5am to accommodate her five day a week training session. The young skater has hopes to represent Great Britain in the Olympics in the future.
Her mother, Lisa Carrington said;
“It started off as a once a week lesson, and now she trains between five and six days a week. Aimee works really hard and is very committed to her skating. I am so grateful to her coaches for bringing the best out in her as she is never happier than when she is on the ice.”
Carrington-Fryer is coached by Diane Towler-Green MBE, a former four-time British, European and World Ice Dance champion, and Candice Towler-Green, a former two-time British Junior Ice Dance champion. Philippa Towler-Green, a four-time British Senior Ice Dance Silver medallist, European and World championship competitor is the third coach, and also choreographer to Carrington-Fryer.
