Our very own Kristen Spours comes 3rd at National Senior Championships
Kristen started skating in 2006 on Spectrum’s holiday courses just for fun after being bought a course for her 6th Birthday. She stayed skating on various holiday and term time courses for the next 2 years when her talent and potential was noticed by one of the coaches, Ruth.
At 8 years old Kristen started private coaching session with Ruth here at Spectrum. Kristen progressed quickly and by 10 years old she was competing at a National level and went on to win her first National Junior Title when she was 15. A further 2 titles followed in the next 2 years making Kristen the only female skater in history to win 3 National Junior titles.
Kristen has also qualified for 3 Junior World Championship Finals and is a current double Bronze Medallist in the National Seniors section which she now competes in following another excellent 3rd placed finish in last week’s National Senior Championships in Sheffield.
Kristen remains passionate about her career and has also moved into coaching others at Spectrum to try and encourage others from all ages to try skating and enjoy the fun that Ice skating offers.
Who knows, maybe one day Kristen will find the next home-grown talent and Spectrum will have another potential Champion to be proud of.
Whether you are looking for casual skating fun or hoping to learn to skate from some of the best coaches around, including Kristen and Ruth, then coming to Spectrum is definitely the place to be!
