TWO skaters who only started learning the sport just over a year ago have qualified for a prestigious national ice skating championship.

Dale Williams from Frecheville, Sheffield, and Wendy Olivant from Worksop, are former competitors at the Real Yorkshire Ice Factor - iceSheffield’s version of Dancing on Ice.

As novices, they teamed up with professionals to learn to skate before performing in front of a sell-out audience at the state-of-the-art rink.

Wendy, and 2010 Ice Factor winner Dale, kept up skating after the competition finished and will now compete with seven other iceSheffield-based skaters at the 2011 British Adult Championships at their home rink starting next Thursday.
