Good Luck - Reuben Dougherty

Good luck to Year 13 student Reuben Dougherty who is one of  eight Dunedin figure skaters set to test themselves against some of Australia's best.

The team left for Sydney yesterday, where it will compete at the 49th Hollins Trophy.

Top skaters from Australia will be at the competition, as well as several internationals.

For most of the Dunedin team it will be their first taste of international competition.

Reuben will compete in the advanced novice men's category.

The skaters train between 15 and 35 hours per week over five or six days. That includes early morning sessions, as well as evening sessions on some days.
