The world of artistic roller skating has been constantly evolving from the traditional freestyle, dance and figure events to precision team skating.
Two of our Canadian athletes, Jade and Kailah Macri from the Whitby Roller Skating Club have shown us what drive and commitment can accomplish. Jade and Kailah competed in an event in Fresno, California earlier this year called the Gold Skate Classic which has been an annual event since the mid 1960’s. They participated in Show Production and their performance won first place. (click here to see video or watch below).
Kailah also competed in the recent US National Championships in Lincoln, Nebraska and placed first in Junior Ladies Freestyle (click to see videos of her short and long program or watch below).
Kailah and Jade will represent Canada at the 53rd World Artistic Roller Skating Championships in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in November. Kailah will compete in Junior World Class Ladies Freestyle and both Kailah and Jade will compete in Junior World Class Ladies Figures.
