A talented figure skater from Ellesmere Port hopes she has 'made the Port proud' after taking to the ice to compete in Croatia as part of Team GB.
Molly Robotham, 11, flew out to Zagreb last Thursday to take part in the ISU (International Skating Union) Golden Bear competition.
Molly successfully performed her routine, overcoming a minor technical issue with one of her jumps, to earned herself a very creditable 10th place and top Brit for her category.
The youngster, a British Championship skater and pupil of Whitby High School, trains at Deeside Ice Skating Club.
Molly’s mum, Melanie Robotham said: “We are all very proud of her and how her hard work and dedication is now paying off.”
Writing on community website Pride in the Port after the event, Molly herself said: “Thank you for your kind words and support.
“I have had an amazing time and had a great experience although the result wasn’t what I had hoped for, I hope that I have made the Port proud.“
Late last year, Molly took part in a fundraiser for Clatterbridge Cancer Charity at the Deeside club in memory of her nan Jeanette Perdergast, who died of lung cancer last April aged 57.
Molly started skating at Deeside Leisure Centre at the age of just three years old and started competing one year later.
She later impressed world champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean on ITV show Dancing on Ice: Ice Stars.
