Fusion bonds in sychronized skating competition

Team members inject enthusiasm, skill into their routine at South Surrey event

The team that sticks together and works hard together gets the results.

Fuller Lake Fusion, by name alone, have that connection going for them, and also put their combined skills to the test as a unit during the B.C.-Yukon Open Synchronized Skating Championships in South Surrey Saturday.

The girls and one boy from the Fuller Lake Skating Club did themselves proud with a fourth-place finish in the Elementary division.

The Fusion, coached by Lorraine Francisty and Sandra Anderson, completed its routine twice and skated extremely well. Every single one of the skaters put their hearts into it.

It was a great event for the team and parents of the skaters could tell they really bonded during the trip.

That was fabulous to see since most components of figure skating make it such an individualized sport.

The Fusion members were happy for the change of pace and had a blast.

They warmed up for the trip the previous week by performing during intermission of a Cowichan Valley Capitals hockey game in Duncan to work out the nerves of doing their routine in front of an audience.
