Skate Comp Re-cap


First off, I would like to thank everyone who came out to this great event and made it one to remember. There were so many skaters that came out and had a great time. It was a cool night as the skating was simply amazing. It was good to see so many new faces coming all the way from Philly and Roanoke! Half the fun of the comp the warm up session and just being able to hang out with everyone. It was a night where everyone cheered each other on and some serious hammers were being thrown. Coming out of the woodwork to win the intermediate division was Shawn Martin, driving all the way down from Philly. Coming in second was park local Drew Blankenship.



Thanks again for putting up with my voice coming through loud and clear on the speakers. It's hard trying to scream out wrong trick names while messing up the contestants name as well. You try doing it sometime. Alley oop and true still puzzle me as I cannot think fast enough as to which is which.

As the lights went down, the skating only got better. The advanced division was broken up into 3 11 minute heats. The top 3 from each group were given a chance to skate in the finals which was a 9 person jam session that went on fro 10 minutes. I really believe this format works well. The split up of the 3 groups gave everyone a little more breathing room and allowed for everyone to be able to watch.

Coming in first was the amazing Brian Arnold. He is coming off a win from the last DC street comp. 2nd place went to Bear, who recovered nicely from his broken leg this summer. And 3rd place went to Jeff Phong.

Good times and great skating. Thanks again for everyone who came out and supported inline skating!
