Competing in the Tayside Trophy alongside skaters from across the UK and Ireland, Emily Thomson earned herself a second-place finish in the Basic Novice Girls contest, securing a personal best score in the process!

Emily’s impressive performance at Dundee Ice Arena means she will now move up to the level of Intermediate Novice - which involves longer, more complex programs - and her score also meets the qualifying mark for future selection for the Great British squad.

Her performances in events this year have also earned her qualification for the 2021 British Figure Skating Championships which are currently taking place in Sheffield.

Emily said, “I’m extremely happy and I’m excited for the next stages!”

Well done Emily!
