Skate stars shine in NZ
Elite South West skaters Madison Bright, Andrew Beattie and Cristin Edwards have returned home after a fine performance at the 2018 Artistic Oceania championships in Rotorua, New Zealand.
The trio, who went through rigorous competition at the national championships to secure selection, shone against quality opposition from New Zealand, England and Japan.
Beattie received first place in both youth men’s solo dance and youth men’s figures, while Bright claimed first in youth women’s solo dance.
