Each year the skaters vote for their skater of the year. This was a closely fought category with lots of nominees, but the overall winner emerged as Fraser L..
The most closely contested competition of the year, is the Fall of the Year. In the passed this fall has occurred in European events, in national competitions or has even been caught on camera. This year, however, apparently the best fall occurred in a quiet Friday morning session, without many witnesses. The stored passed around afterwards varied in detail, but all agreed it was a worthy candidate for the Fall of the Year competition. Congratulations to Euan T.
