Weekend of success at Lombardia Trophy for GB skaters

Last weekend saw four Great British skaters compete at the Lombardia Trophy in Sesto San Giovanni, Italy. The competition, which is part of the Challenger Series, took place from September 8th to 11th.

Ice Dance couple Lilah Fear and Lewis Gibson last competed at the 2016 Lake Placid Ice Dance International in July where they finished in 11th place. The pair enjoyed a much more successful weekend in Italy as they finished in second place with an overall score of 139.60.

Hot off the back of their performances at the ISU Junior Grand Prix in St. Gervais at the end of August, Junior figure skaters Graham Newberry and Kristen Spours took to the ice to attempt to better their scores from just a few weeks previous.

In the Men’s category Graham Newberry achieved a top ten finish, coming 7th with an overall score of 166.91; over ten points higher than his previous competition. In the Ladies category Kristen Spours also saw a significant improvement on her previous score, placing 12th with an overall score of 135.21.
