Huge congratulations are in order for synchronised ice skaters from the Isle of Wight.

Skaters from Wight Sequins, Wight Sparkles, Wight Crystals and Wight Jewels all competed in a national competition – the Wales and West Viola synchronised Ice Skating Championships – in Cardiff at the weekend.

Between them, the teams picked up three silvers and a gold medal. This is despite not having a home rink to train on (since Ryde Arena was closed by AEW in October 2016), meaning the IW teams are on the ice for only a fraction of the time other teams are.

Gold – Wight Crystals
Silver – Wight Jewels

Wightlink were thanked for their sponsorship, without which – the teams say – they would be unable to keep training and competing.
