The Britannia Cup was held on the 23rd and 24th April at IceSheffield in Sheffield. Usually held in January, this was the first Synchronised Skating British Championships held since 2020 and had been rescheduled due to COVID earlier this year.

Strict confinement is not in place everywhere. A synchro skater from Essex, England, has found a great alternative to continue training while ice rinks are actually closed in many countries: roller skating. Evangeline Perry shares her experience with us.
There are very young synchro skaters who don't go unnoticed. This is the case of Isabella Green, 6 years old, from Cardiff in the United Kingdom. In a very funny video published today, the little girl gives her beauty tips for synchro competitions.
