Former CFSC Member Judges Worlds

Tina (Stephan) Lundgren will be a judge at the World Championships in Japan this week judging the Women’s event.  Tina earned her Gold Medal in both Figures and Free Skate in 1977 at age 12 while a member of CFSC.  After coaching while in college at OSU, she turned to judging and became a National Judge while still residing in Columbus.  Moving on to New York City, she became an International Judge and then a World Judge.  Her training both as a skater and a judge with CFSC provided her the background for this accomplishment.

2014 SEGL Sportsmanship Award Winner

Congratulations to Livvy Shilling who won the SEGL Sportsmanship award this year. Each year, member clubs of SEGL (South Eastern Great Lakes) are eligible to nominate a club member for the award. The Columbus Figure Skating club council requests names of skaters to be  considered for nomination by our club. Qualities considered include: leadership, sportsmanship, spirit, perseverance, and industriousness. This year the members presented for nomination were:  Alex Magnuson, Anya Cohen, Caroline Nickerson, and Livvy Shilling.  All four nominees are excellent examples of sportsmanship, but the club can submit only one nomination.  It was a very difficult decision and the council selected Livvy for nomination from our club.

Good Day Columbus Features Club Coaches and Skaters

Recently, Good Day Columbus visited Chiller Easton where reporter Dana Turtle learned to skate!  He had lots of help from Valerie, Olympian and one of the club’s world-class coaches and several current club members.  Although the harness did not seem to help Dana’s jumping, it did provide amazing comedy, and by the end of his visit he looked pretty good in a straight line!
