Langley’s own Kayla Halliday is back home with a gold medal in figure skating from the B.C. Games.
Kim won the Games’ juvenile women’s figure skating event.
The 12-year-old French immersion student at Noel Booth Elementary has been skating for five years, said her proud mom Carla Halliday.
This was a big event for Kayla, because it was her first competition without her coach by her side. She was also a little more independent than at the typical games, because she was travelling, sleeping, and eating with her fellow young athletes, instead of her parents.
Kayla is currently the 2018 BC Sectionals champion for U14 women, which earned her the invite to the B.C. Winter Games.
