Meet Evie Lewis, currently ISS Coventry’s youngest competitive skater.

Now aged eight, Evie started Skate UK when she was five-and-a-half and now skates four times a week, taught by ISS coaches Emma Davies and Richard Beamish.

Evie was delighted to be chosen to perform at the opening of Coventry’s outdoor rink in 2012 and to open Planet Ice Coventry’s festive show ‘A Christmas Cracker.’

In February 2013, Evie achieved 3rd place in the Milton Keynes Open and she is due to compete in more competitions this year. She said: “I was on the podium for the first time and I absolutely loved it – all my friends and family are very proud of me."

“I love competing and in the future I would really like to be in the Winter Olympics.”

Evie has recently passed NISA Level 1 Field Moves and competes at Beginner level. She has started learning Axel, and is improving her Lutz and variation spins. She said: “My favourite thing is sit-spin and I have just put a head-to-knee spin into my programme."

“Emma and Richard have taught me so much. They are really nice and very good coaches.”

Evie enjoys being a member of Coventry Figure Skating Club, where she has made lots of friends and gets to try new things.

As well as putting in many hours on the ice, Evie also works very hard off the ice. She said: “I train off ice whenever I can. Even though it doesn’t sound important I think it’s almost as important as the skating."

“I feel very happy about my skating – it’s my favourite thing in the world and when I am on the ice I always feel very excited!”

Evie attends ISS camps during Easter and Summer holidays and is looking forward to taking part again this year and has more recently gained a 1st at the Telford Open and 2nd at the Lee Valley Open, Well done Evie!
