23 teams from all over Switzerland took part in the very first Swiss competition of the year, which took place this weekend in Huttwil, in the canton of Bern.

The Advanced Novices category opened the competition. Berthoud's Cool Dreams, who skated to Mary Poppins, won the division with 59.39. The Starlight from Zürich, Team Ruby and Team Bernettes completed the rankings.

In the Basic Novice field, the Ice Flowers team from Thun claimed the gold medal (27.25), finishing ahead of the Ice Crystals and the Ice Spice.

Two teams competed in the Juvenile category. The young Cool Dreams delivered a strong program and won the competition with 20.74. The Ice Pearls from Basel skated to a mix of songs from the savannah.

The Adult category brought together three teams. All presented clean programs full of new features. It was again the Cool Dreams Crystals from Burgdorf who won the competition, but the Ice Liners (30.00) and Team Passion (29.33) did not finish far behind!

In the Mixed Age category, there wasn't big suspense for the first place. The Snowflakes, defending champions for several years, obtained gold with a total of 62.56 points.  The United Blades from Neuchâtel skated to the theme of "Matrix" and finished second, and the Bernettes earned the bronze. This competition was important for the teams in this division. Indeed, the event served as a selection for the Mixed Age Trophy which will take place in Basel at the end of March.

Finally, the Seniors B category delighted the public! The programs were full of energy and very well executed. Victory went to the Cool Dreams Royals of Berthoud with a strong lead (72.86). The Starlight team (62.79) and the Basel Saphire team (60.68) finished respectively second and third. Team Unity and Starlight Jewels also competed in Huttwil.
The Swiss teams now have a few weeks to work on their program and details for the next competition in Switzerland, which will take place on March 1 in the canton of St. Gallen.
