Imogen took to the ice with a mission and it showed from the first note to the last - in every step, every musical nuance and every gesture that met them with purpose and meaning!
Her vibrant and enticing interpretation had the audience sitting up and taking notice and her expression was consistent throughout. Her score reflected that as well and she attained a personal best in the Intermediate Novice division.
This hearty and stylish performance echoed in the minds of the judges with their unanimous decision to award the Saturday runner-up place and this overall award for 2018.
Hearty congrats Imogen!
Jordan's wonderful skating skills and artistry escapes from every pore of her being when she is on the ice.
200% probably covers it! Every nuance of the music noted, from her fabulous extension, to the placement of her hands ~ all are part and parcel of her performance. And never does she look back if things don't go to plan.
She just keeps performing until the music says it's over and the story is told.
A worthy recipient of the Crystal Challenge Perpetual Trophy this year, and once more it goes interstate.
Kailani performed in the Senior singles division, blitzing the field both in her division and as the crowd favourite to take the trophy in 2016. Her supreme expression and interpretation, technical skill and connection with her audience stood out amongst what was a wonderful three days of this year's event, providing the audience with many great performances and fabulous competition.
Kailani was also our very first interstate winner!
Big congrats Kailani!
At 9 years of age, Silvia exuded charm and performance style to capture the hearts of both the crowd and the judges, becoming the 5th recipient of the Crystal Trophy.
Her smile showed how much she loves figure skating and as the winner of the Preliminary Ladies event, she displayed the joy and expression of a true performer.
A smashing performance drew the judges attention to Nick, along with a smashing score in Preliminary Men's division! Nick was the first male skater to drag attention away from the masses of colour and Swarovski costume bling, making his mark with great skating skills, elegant costuming and brilliant interpretation.
Alanna competed in both technical and artistic this year, taking the gold medal in Preliminary Ladies under 12, as well as the silver medal in her artistic division, which is interestingly where she made the greatest impact! Her technical ability shone, but her creative and theatrical delivery of her character shone through making her a popular choice for the 2013 trophy winner.
Massive congrats Alanna!
Laura's win in 2012 shone the light on some terrific Aussie Skate talent coming through in Victoria. Laura shone in both her technical and artistic programs, delivering some superb skating in Free Skate 3 and taking 2 x gold medals home!
Not only showing some cute factor, but her assurance and confidence endeared her to the audience and judges alike! A young aussie skater on a mission!
Congratulations young Laura!
The inaugural winner of the Crystal Challenge Trophy in 2011 was a young 11 year old Pre-Primary skater whose enthusiasm and love for her sport dripped from every pore of her being.
From the moment she took to the ice in a little pink dress, she lit up the ice with energy and jazzy personality. Anisha pipped a couple of interstate skaters at the post on points, but her high energy performance and interpretation of the music had the judges unanimously convinced.
Massive ongratulations Anisha!
