IW SKATERS bagged three golds and a bronze at the Bracknell Open.

Ayesha Taylor achieved a PB score to win the beginner girls’ aged ten and over, while Will Riley won the level 2 men’s competition, also with a PB score.

Also reaching the top of the podium was Miles Grist, in the level 3 men’s contest, a great achievement considering it was his first competition at level 3.

Winning a bronze was Oliver Brunton in the beginner boys, on his competitive debut.

Lauren Wood was 12th in the level 2 ladies, a good result for a young skater who was competing at this level for the first time.
