Friday 28th John & Sinead Kerr well-placed in Bern
  Murrayfield Club Honorary members Sinead and John Kerr are well-placed to capture the second major international medal of their career after a superb short dance at the European Figure Skating Championships in Bern, Switzerland.
  John & Sinead, currently in third place, collected European bronze in 2009, have already proved their form this season, scooping silver at the Skate Canada International.
Good luck to them in the Free Dance
     
Saturday 29th John & Sinead Kerr Win European Bronze in Bern
John and Sinead Kerr won their second European Championship medal as they secured ice dance bronze at the European Figure Skating Championship in Bern.

Competing in their eighth championship, the seven time British champions maintained their reputation for adding a contemporary twist to their performances by skating to music by alternative rock band Muse.

Performing to “Exogenis Symphony” John & Sinead produced a flowing and emotional performance that was highlighted by interesting lifts and intricate footwork.
 

The brother and sister team earned 94.62 points and accumulated 157.49 points overall to return on to the podium. They had won the bronze in 2009 as well.
John said “It feels great. We’re bit disappointed last year.
We’ve might have had a better shot at gold if he had competed all season. It was a tough job getting any medal coming into this competition as the other competitors were great”,.

Sinead commented. “I am pretty happy with the free skate. I got spooked on the first twizzle so the second one ended up being not so good but the steps were okay.
I am proud of Sinead coming back like this after her dislocated shoulder”, her brother added.
