Season Best’s for GB Skaters at World Junior Figure Skating Championships

Last week, the best junior figure skating talent in the world all met under one roof in Debrecen, Hungary for the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2016.
 
With representation in each category, the competition gave some of our younger uprising talents the chance to take to the ice against their toughest rivals on the world scene.
 

Taking to the ice for Ice Dance, was Ekaterina Fedyushchenko and Lucas Kitteridge. Facing tough competition the couple skated through their short dance to a score of 38.12. Unfortunately this left them out of the competition ahead of the free dance.

For pairs, it was British Champions and Chelmsford’s Chloe Curtain and Steven Adcock. Rising to the occasion in their short programme, the pair achieved a season best skate. After skating their free programme the following day the pair achieved an overall score of 112.68, leaving them 12th in the competition.

Representing the ladies was British Champion Danielle Harrison from Dundee. Skating in a tough category, Harrison scored 37.59 leaving her shy of qualifications for the free programme.

Finally skating for Junior Men was current British Champion, Josh Brown from Nottingham. After a strong start to the competition in his short programme with a season best score, Brown advanced through to Friday’s free skate. Once again, Brown was able to perform another season best and he ended the competition with an overall score of 157.16 placing 23rd in a category with 38 skaters.

Well done to all of the skaters who took part.
