Written by Emily Phillips

Sheffield has seen a fourth day of action on the rink as Ice Sheffield has been hosting the British Figure Skating Championships this week.

Sheffield Wire talked to PJ Hallam, 26, who is competing over the weekend to defend his Men’s Singles crown from the last time he took part in 2019.

Hallam said: “Training has been going very well, I have been feeling really good whilst I’m on the ice.

“It seems like just each session I get on is running really really well.”

The championships have made a return after being postponed last year.

Wilf Reeves, the PR and Marketing Officer for the event, said: “Everyone is just really pleased to be back skating, back competing.

“There are a few nerves around, it is the National Championships, but everyone seems to go out onto the ice really express themselves and really enjoy it.”

A number of different categories mean skaters of all abilities can compete, from basic novices through to advanced novices who have already been crowned British Champions.

Today has seen the junior skaters take to the ice in a bid to compete in free skating.

At the time of reporting, Arabella Sear-Watkins is taking the lead in the Women’s Juniors today, with a total score of 107.03 points.

This is almost 20 points ahead of the second place competitor Taylor McLeod, who is currently scoring 88.63.

The Junior Men are set to compete later this afternoon, followed by the Advanced Novice and Junior Pairs later this evening.
