Gold medals for ice skater Callum

Posted onPosted on 23rd Apr

Figure skater Callum Mills claimed four gold medals at the Inclusive Skating Scottish Championships.

The championships were decided by the judges viewing video entries because of the coronavirus crisis and most of the skaters having underlying health conditions.

Callum, a former Portland College student who trains at the Lammas Leisure Centre rink in Sutton, won gold for free skating, free dancing, elements and pairs — performing the latter with his skating partner Jennifer Lee, of Skipton.

Callum, 21, of Shuttlewood, was also moved up to level two in the free dance section because of his major improvement.

His mother, Michelle Mills, said she was particularly proud of Callum and also Jenny. “Luckily we managed to get our videos submitted before lockdown,” she added. “Well done to everyone and a massive thank you to Kelly Scott, Ade Jack and Helena Lee.”

Last year Callum, who has a number of special needs because he is deaf and has autism, a heart defect and CHARGE syndrome — a rare genetic disorder that can affect many areas of the body — won golds, silvers and bronze in all of his competitions.
