28 Jul Mitsuko makes her mark at NZ Champs

Nayland College skater Mitsuko Nam has returned with results from the New Zealand Roller Sports Artistic Championships, held in New Plymouth during the holidays. The Year 11 student placed 2nd in Youth International Ladies Solo Dance and 3rd in Youth International Ladies Figures.

Mitsuko has been roller-skating since 2005, competing nationally and internationally. Like any sport, it requires a significant time commitment, and she currently trains 4-5 times a week with Nelson Roller Sports at the Tahunanui skating rink.

Mitsuko’s recent success follows a strong performance at the Oceania Champs in April. Her next goal is to qualify for the NZ team again in 2016, when the Oceania Championships will be held in NZ.
