|Figure skating is now on the move in Madrid.
In a just few years it has become the main contributor of young skaters
into the national team.
I come from Madrid, and Iím very glad to see
the increasing number of débutantes, novices and juniors. At this
moment there are five clubs from Madrid region (Igloo, Majadahonda, Leganés,
Legahielo and Boadilla) which usually participate in national and are beginning
to compete at international events along with the clubs from Barcelona,
Vitoria, Jaca and San Sebastián.
This success comes from the great effort and
enthusiasm of the skaters, their families, coaches and the fans that support
this beautiful sport. Still, thereís more to accomplish, specially speaking
of companies support to maintain figure skating in Spain.
