    Summary

    Zoe Ann Jones was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, in January 1980.

    Zoe has competed under a number of names. She used her maiden name of Zoe Jones until the 200102 season, when she retired from competitive skating. She made her comeback as an Adult skater in the 2013–14 season, competing under the name Zoe Wood (the surname of her first husband, Canadian Ice Hockey player Dody Wood). During the 2014–15 season, Zoe got re-married, to English / South African figure skater Matthew Wilkinson. So, when she return to competing at Senior level for the 2015–16 season, it was as Zoe Wilkinson.

    Apparantly, Zoe had been declared the champion, and then it was changed.

    I still don't know exactly what happened, but I've posted copies of some of the comments to the British Championships event thread (they're on page 2).

    Maybe somebody who was watching will be able to fill us in.

    OK, so Icebethy (who was at the championships) has filled us in on what happened:

    Quote Originally Posted by Icebethy View Post

    So then at the podium it was announced to everyone else, some of the response wasn't great, but no one deserved that response. So it was kind of bitter sweet, the original score out Zoe 1.3 points ahead after both programs
    EDIT: Icebethy has provided some more details, and it turns out that I had picked things up wrong. It wasn't for a few minutes that everybody thought Zoe had won - it was for a few hours!

    Quote Originally Posted by Icebethy View Post

    It shouldn't happen but it has, however Zoe still won the night and missed the top of the podium by 0.09 a massive feat by someone who grew up in the 6.0 era and has had to learn ijs. The way they announced it was hard as instead of doing the podiums in order they left the ladies till last, and as I have heard the skaters had only just been told before the audience. Everyone is moaning that people booed a 16 year old, but irrespective of age it shouldn't happen to any skater of any age its jus not fair!

    When watching the ladies there was an energy in the building that hasn't been there in the last couple of years, so in a way that part is good, hopefully deepening the strength of British ladies/British skating, hopefully.

    Nick and Penny gave an amazing performance, same with Peter James and Phil. The gala that NISA has started running over the past few years at the end of the event was really good as always, all of this is stored on the live stream links as well I think as the podiums which have been posted up until Saturday, I have not looked for Sundays.

    Icebethy

    Edit ISU were contacted and helped sort the issue out following the isu rules on what to do with the issue in the ladies therefore the change was done within the rules and with isu knowing.
    Hearing that NISA had to go to the ISU to sort it out, I can understand how it took so long. But, the skaters should have been told straight away, and the audience straight after. It should not have been left until the podium ceremony.

    Regardless, it was not right for the audience to react badly to the skaters. It wasn't the skaters' fault that somebody back stage messed up.

    Shame on them! They can't be true fans.
