Penny and Nick have won bronze at the Europeans.
Great free dance to Michael Jackson music.

Well done to both of them

Fantastic result for Penny and Nick, especially with his heart op a few months ago. Their career best score as well, wasn't it?

Neither ignorant or naïve, considering how little publicity competitive figure skating gets in the UK!

Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland are the British Ice Dance champions. Nick had an operation several months ago to correct a condition that made his heart beat too fast.

I expected at the time it'd mean they'd miss the Olympics - I never imagined they could come back so strong in such a short time!

It'd be a nice touch if DOI could mention their achievement on the show tonight. I seem to remember the did when the Kerrs won their bronze a few years back.

I can't believe how little recognition they get in the media.
If they were tennis players they would be household names.

Hope DOI will give them a mention Bambi.

I've just heard that Chemmy will be available, and has been picked for the downhill (which is my favourite) She only went and broke her leg again last August!  She was on DOI a few years ago.
Although I can, sort of, ski;I start off OK but then tend to come down backwards and out of control and have to be caught if I don't fall overLOL

I remember Toots. Nice girl. Good skater. I don't follow skiing. Is she a medal hope?

Well, she's not a front runner where the world is concerned these days because she had a dreadful, dreadful injury a few years back and another fracture last  summer. But she's one of those not to be discounted. I reckon she could well medal, but wouldn't put a bet on it.

I think she's a lovely girl too, but sadly just recovering -shouldn't be ski-ing imo. She won't win anything.

But there's probably no-one else who she's taking the place of, don't think ski-iers in UK are in supply/abundance  like they are in Canada.
Having said that a pupil at my daughters school (age 16- called Jazmine)  is ranked two in Slalom, and is competing in the adults Alpine ski=ing season just starting. (has just missed 4 weeks of school to train)

Good Luck to her! It's nice to hear about these youngsters and watch them coming up through the ranks.
