Senior figure skater Katie Powell will represent Great Britain this week at the Lombardia Trophy in Sesto San Giovanni, Italy. The international competition will run from 17th to 20th September and sees skaters come together from around the world to compete in various categories from Advanced Novice to Senior levels.
Katie, 23, was British Junior Ladies Champion from 2010 to 2012. In the Lombardia Trophy she will be putting her skills and years of experience to great use, competing in Senior Ladies against skaters from countries including Japan and USA.
We caught up with Katie ahead of the competition to hear how she has been recovering from a broken ankle in the past few months and how she’s been preparing for the season ahead;
“The rehab process has been long and quite frustrating at times but I have learnt so much from it all and feel that my perspective and attitude to the sport is better now. I have been training in France ahead of the new season and am looking forward to the Lombardia Trophy which will be my first international competition in the 2015/16 season.”
You can find out how Katie does in the competition by staying up to date with the NISA news page where we will share Katie’s results after the event.
We wish Katie the best of luck in Italy and for the rest of the skating season.
