Interesting article about Conor Stakelum from Ireland. I hope it's okay to post this.
Has anyone heard anything from PJ?
They couldn’t use COVID-19 as an excuse to not reopen, that’s to cruel.
My rink in London Queensways is opening soon but you have to prebook your ice time.
How quickly things change... for skating for a while now unfortunately.
My coach sent me this petition (link: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/307146) but the government did actually give a very reasonable response.
I think if there was a compromise to be made, if only for training for the professionals!
I am in Scotland right now actually!
But there’s no information on Murryfield yet unfortunately. We seem to be following England when it comes to opening things up, if perhaps a week or two delayed.
Is that PJ and Danielle I can see on the ice?
I'm glad that they can start training again!
Looks like British Ice Skating got special dispensation to get some skaters skating again (link: https://www.instagram.com/p/CCJw4mXJ-oa/?igshid=biyph3wd7d5b)
“ Performance Skaters Return to the Ice - 02/07/2020 Following Government Elite Sport Return to Training Guidance, British Ice Skating are pleased to announce a small number of the Performance Squad Athletes are back on the Ice. Thanks to Bradford Ice Rink for facilitating this and accommodating all the athletes in a safe environment. We are working hard with all rinks to support all our Ice Skating Family to get back on the ice.”
I saw this tweet from Simon Briggs:
Must feel so weird to be back on the ice after such an absence.
