Callie Brown - young figure skater from England

My Story

My Story:
My name is Callie Brown. I am eight years old. I started skating two years ago at Slough Ice arena, I began by having group lessons, then I started having private lessons with my coach Vicky Wright. I enjoyed my lessons very much, then after nine months I joined the junior academy were I won a trophy for (most promising skater of the year). I loved the club as I got to skate on a weekend. I started having more lessons and quickly progressed, taking part in shows and competitions. I have done well in the open competitions but hope to do better this year. I have a ten year old brother Jake, and he supports my skating. He gets up early in the mornings so I can skate. He also does a lot of sports; football, athletics, netball, swimming and he is starting break dancing soon. All my family and friends come to my competitions to cheer me on. It's great.

Vicky Wright

I am in year 3 the first year of the juniors
I am an excellent student and got top marks in my exams last year
I am hoping to go to grammar school which will also take a lot of hard work

My school are very supportive with my figure skating. They allow me to skate in the mornings and have time off to compete in open competitions so I am very grateful to them.

I dont get to train as much as I would like to, as I dont live close to the Ice rink but I have 3 to 4 lessons a week and practise 7 hours a week I would love to skate all day everyday.
