Clonliffe 2016 Winter Olympics squad in training

The Christmas season kicked off today as the U/15 and U/16 girls and boys squads had their Christmas outing at the RDS Ice Skating Rink. Clearly the 2016 Winter Olympic Games are now a real possibility for some of these athletes. As expected the girls took to the ice like real professionals from the off and completed a fall free session. The same couldn`t be said of the boys although in fairness star of the show Sean Carrig in particular has a great future as a speed skater, while Thomas Ward showed great poise and graceĀ and maybe Ireland`sĀ potential figure skating gold medalist in 2016!
