Sree Abiraame; A name that needs no introduction!
The young national figure skater has once again made our country proud after clinching the 2nd spot in the Cubs B girls’ free-skating category at the Narva Cup 2021 in Estonia on Saturday (30th October).
The Selangor born native has been training in Latvia for the past one year, and was delighted with her second-place finish in Estonia. The young talent also expressed her sincere gratitude to fellow Malaysians for their support.
“Thank you to all Malaysians for blessing and supporting me,” she said, with a beaming smile, in a short video shared with the media on Sunday.
Meanwhile, her father B. Chendren thanked Malaysians for cheering on his daughter and hope they would continue to do so when Sree competes in Lithuania, reported The Star.
In 2015, her parents brought Abiraame to an ice rink for the first time, not knowing that this would be the stepping stone in the making of a world class athlete. She’s a quick learner blessed with world renowned coaches and the dozens of skating videos that she watches daily on YouTube to help improve her form and technique.
To date, the 10-year-old figure skater has engraved her name in the Asia Book of Records for becoming the youngest winner at the International Figure Skating in 2019 and Malaysia Book of Records as the youngest to win “Skate Asia” Figure Skating Competition (Female) in 2017.
Additionally, the 44th Volvo Open Cup competition is scheduled from 3rd till 7th of November, 2021 and will take place in Riga, Latvia, at the Volvo Sports Center. It is an international figure skating competition for the singles and ice dance disciplines in the Senior, Junior, Advanced/Intermediate/Basic Novice, and younger categories.
