Last weekend, Isla Newton competed in the UAE figure skating championship in Abu Dhabi. There were hundreds of competitors from the UAE and Kuwait who had been preparing to take the ice in hopes of receiving some new jewelry for their neck.
Hoping to add to her already impressive collection of hardware, Isla competed in 5 events and medaled in all; receiving 4 Golds and 1 Silver. This competition taught Isla a lot about competing at this level as well as a great deal a sportsmanship, which was fantastic. She showed a wonderful attitude throughout the whole weekend and was incredibly well received by the other skaters and by the Judging panel which was comprised of a group of internationally recognised judges.
