COBRAS Rollerskating Club has broken a club record with seven skaters competing at the 2018 National Artistic Rollerskating Championship in Mirrabooka, which starts tomorrow.
The skaters train at the Rollerzone in Malaga and the Midvale Speed Dome.
They will be competing at Herb Graham Recreation Centre from July 7 to 13.
Coach Rachel Donnelly said all skaters have been putting in extra hours in the rink.
“Cobras Rollerskating Club is still a newly-formed club and we are very excited to have a record number of seven of our skaters competing at the national championships, especially since some have only been skating less than two years,” she said.
“Our skaters all placed very well at the state championships and I am hoping they will be able to continue their good form into nationals.
“We have some very talented skaters at our club but most importantly they work hard to achieve their goals, which is an emphasis Michele Wollens (other Cobras head coach) and myself pride ourselves on.”
Donnelly said international skater Bridgitte Williams was a chance to earn national selection for a junior international ladies solo dance event.
“It is something Brigitte has been working towards her entire skating career and this nationals will be her last opportunity to qualify in the junior category, so we’re all cheering for her,” she said.
