Ice skaters in a top squad

Have your say

THREE ice skaters based in Sheffield have been picked to be part of national team which competes in some of the sport’s top events.

Jason Thompson, Daniel King and Katie Powell, who train at iceSheffield in Attercliffe, have been selected for the National Ice Skating Association or NISA’s performance team.

The trio will be part of a 20-strong group of skaters from around the country.

Katie recently bagged fourth place in the International Skating Union Dragon Trophy in Slovenia, while Daniel was a silver medallist in last year’s British Junior Championships.

Jason has also seen success in the Australian Youth Olympic Festival, and is returning to training in the sport after a two-year break following an injury.
