The future of ice skating scores Six Point Zero
Press release by Emma Fallon
With shows such as Dancing on Ice and Battle of The Blades taking the airwaves by storm, and all eyes on the display of athletic prowess at various figure skating competitions, the world of this wonderful kind of sport remains very popular.
No strangers to life on the ice, full time athletes and ice dancing duo Louise Walden and Owen Edwards of Great Britain are committed to driving this positive attention towards their specialist sport, encouraging future athletes and Olympians to take to the skates.
With almost two decades experience in the industry and 8 years together as team, the British ice dancing couple have sent chills down the spines of judges, spectators and fans across the globe, ranking as one of the Top 20 ice dancing couples in the world.
As British and Welsh Ice Dancing Champions and International gold medalists, the pair represented Skate Team GB at the 2011 World Championships in Moscow, earning them a place as British Olympic Generation 2014 Athletes.
With a schedule this full, you’d think Louise and Owen would have little time for other pursuits. The team work as hard as they play, and soon they will be launching their brand new retail website, Six Point Zero – a website designed for skaters, by skaters.
This stunning new online store truly brings ice skating to the retail market, providing the same shopping experience that you would expect from the high street giants. Skaters of all levels, from world-class professionals like Walden and Edwards to complete beginners, will find all their questions answered by Six Point Zero’s quick-start ability guides and expert advice.
Even with so little time on their hands, the team still find the energy to maintain the UK’s leading online ice skating store through their commitment to their fans and the future of the sport. The proceeds of the website currently fund their intense training and exorbitant competition expenses, but with high hopes for the future, Louise and Owen are looking to set up a Six Point Zero Skating Development Fund to help the next generation of skating stars realise their potential and reach their goals, just as they have done.
The Six Point Zero skating retail website will go live in early September, followed by the Walden & Edwards ice dancing team website. Visit it starting from next month at www.sixpointzero.com
