Marina Ellison is one of just two Fuller Lake Skating Club members with double Gold levels.
Ellison, a Grade 10 student at Frances Kelsey Secondary, passed her Gold Skills and Gold Freeskate — the most difficult to obtain — last year.
She’s been skating since the age of four and still loves being on the ice.
“The speed and freedom of being on the ice, I love it,’’ Ellison said.
But she is a bit torn between sports because Ellison is also a very good field hockey player who was on the B.C. U15 team during the summer and currently plays for the Kelsey senior girls’ high school team.
“I don’t want to quit either skating or field hockey,’’ she said. “I really love both sports.’’
Both are currently going full bore which makes for a busy schedule combined with school.
Ellison has a very advanced long progam and is still tinkering with other elements.
“I’m working on my double axel and triple (Salchow) which were not in the (long) program because they’re not consistent yet,’’ she said. “I have landed triple sows in the past.’’
Ellison is also working on a third Gold in Dance that she hopes to obtain this season.
