GLAMORGAN Artistic Roller Skating Club recently sent its competition team to its first major competition, The Summer Dance Festival, held in Crawley by the Federation of Artistic Roller Skating.

The skating team consisting of, Lara Goodwin, Kaitlin Daly, Katie Vaughan, Bethan Daly, Charleigh Griffith, Medi Western, Maya Archampoma, Ewan Maxwell and Michael Vaughan travelled 180 miles to compete against over three hundred skaters from all over Great Britain and had excellent results, with Michael Vaughan and Bethan Daly skating as a couple, coming 2nd in their event, and all our other skaters achieving high placing's within their events.

Their trainer Sheilah Davies was extremely pleased with the results and is now training the skaters for the next competition in December. Glamorgan Artistic was the only Welsh club to attend and is working hard to put Welsh skating back on the map.
