It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of former Olympic and World Championship skater, Nancy Burley. She was 82 years old. She passed away in Pindara Hospital on the Gold Coast surrounded by her family.
Nancy was born Nancy Hallam on 8th March 1930.
She was the matriarch of one of Australia's skating's great families. Her husband Pat was an ice rink developer and operator of rinks across the Australian eastern seaboard - in Victoria, NSW and in Queensland.
As 2012 draws to a close, our international representatives have been representing australia around the world - with some very good results.
US based Brooklee Han has recorded some very solid scores and placings in recent months, placing in Junior events 8/25 in Lake Placid (JGP), 12/30 in Istanbul (JGP). in Senior events, she was also a standout, with an 8/22 finish at Nebelhorn Trophy in Germany and a noteworthy 3rd place in a field of 16 skaters at Merano Cup, Italy. Han has quaified to Four Continents in February and the World zJunior Championships in February-March.
