Burnaby skater second at Summerskate
Nami Inoda, of the Burnaby Figure Skating Club, finished second in the senior women at the 2013 BC/Yukon Summerskate competition at Burnaby 8-Rinks. Inoda's combined score of 114.87 in the short and long programs was less than two points behind winner Amanda Hofmann, who skates out of the BC Centre of Excellence.
Beata Papp, of the Coquitlam Skating Club finished third.
In the senior men, Jeremy Ten of the North Shore Winter Club, finished first, ahead of Ronald Lam of Coquitlam and Garrett Gosselin of Skate Regina. Ten, a former member of Canada's national team, is returning to competition after suffering a serious ankle injury.
Two other highly-regarded skaters who were expected to compete had withdrawn earlier. Three-time Canadian national medalist Kevin Reynolds of the Vancouver Skating Club, pulled out because of equipment issues. Three-time Canadian national champion Emanuel Sandhu had a scheduling conflict. Sandhu returned to competition in December after retiring in 2007.
A record 600 skaters in dozens of age categories competed at the meet, which is considered the first test of spring and summer training.
