Thank you to Mrs O’Mahoney for this update:
“As you know, Imogen has just competed in her final synchronized skating competition of the season with her team The Whizz Kids in The Budapest Cup 2017. What a fantastic end to what has been an amazing season.
There were teams from Russia, Hungary, Georgia, Czechoslovakia, Germany and Poland. Altrincham were the only team from Great Britain.
It was a very fierce competition and the scores were very close. Germany came first in the category but The Whizz Kids came second, bringing home a very well deserved Silver Medal. This was a true reward for all their hard work and commitment, the early morning training sessions have really paid off.
I have attached a photo which to me, demonstrates what it is all about. It is a group “hug” between The Whizz Kids and Le Soleil, the team from Poland who came fifth in the category. Language was no barrier, neither was who scored highest, as they laughed and skated together at the closing ceremony. The girls have made new friends from around world and have had such an amazing experience.”
