A talented young ice skater who hopes to one day compete in the Olympics has been crowned national champion. Eleven-year-old Amy Morris won the accolade at the 2015 British Figure Skating Championships in her category, Basic Novice B Ladies.
Amy trains for 14 hours a week rushing between Altrincham Ice rink, her home in Knutsford and school in order to balance her busy lifestyle. The Knutsford Academy pupil - who first took to the ice at the age of five - is used to juggling homework and training.
She is even allowed to arrive to morning classes late so she can fit in two and half hours of practice each morning - and then goes back to the rink again straight after school. Amy said of her latest win: “I was really really happy - I was literally crying. It’s the biggest competition I’ve won and I’m going to try and win some more this season. I did lots of hard skills in my routine. It didn’t take that long, I just looked at someone I really look up to and watched lots of their videos.
In one of their final tune-ups before leaving Thursday for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Franz-Peter Jerosch and Julia Curran leaped, twirled and sashayed Monday night through their 2-minute, 40-second routine to instrumental strains from “Man of La Mancha.” Performing before an appreciative audience of friends and admirers at the Family Ice Center, the 14-year-old Jerosch and 12-year-old Curran skated like they’ve been together for years instead of a mere 11 months.
“They have a shot at being on the podium,” said Kristin Andrews, a Yarmouth native and former skater who has been working with Jerosch and Curran since November, after they placed second in the Eastern sectionals in Simsbury, Connecticut. “We haven’t seen what other pairs are doing, but based on the way they’re skating with their elements, they’ve been clean. They’ve really been working on making a good connection on the ice. And if they make you feel comfortable and happy when you watch them, you’ll think, ‘Wow, they’re good.’ ”
Jerosch, who sprouted 7 inches in the past year and now stands a shade over 6 feet, is a freshman at Yarmouth High. Curran, a foot shorter, is a seventh-grader at St. Brigid School in Portland. They will skate late Saturday night at the Bloomington Ice Garden outside of Minneapolis.
