    It's always great to see another country getting a larger presence in figure skating:

    Figure skating has rapidly grown in popularity over the past few years thanks to improved ice skating rinks and more leading coaches coming to New Zealand.

    A greater appreciation of the high skill level required is also helping to produce more male skaters, Armstrong says.

    "You've got to be pretty tough and gritty. It's all about technical ability, athleticism and strength."

    Durham hopes to compete at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and one day make the leap to Canada to skate professionally.
    Does anyone know which coaches moved to New Zealand?
