WINTER YOUTH OLYMPICS GAMES 2016: WESTERN AUSTRALIA’S OWN STAR

Added: Mon, 13th Jul 2015 - 11:45


Madison Poole one of Australia’s brightest young female ice hockey prospects is off to Finland to put her skills to the test in the second round of qualifications in Vierumaki Finland from 5-10 July, in hopes to qualify for the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer in February 2016.

Participating in the 2016 YOG IHA selection trials in April for females born 2000 and 2001, Madison was then selected as IHA’s YOG female candidate. Madison will be joined in Finland by Team Coach Tamra Jones.

Madison initially took up a learn to skate program when she was 9, after giving up gymnastics and took to the ice not only in ice hockey but also in the other ice sports, figure skating, synchronised skating and short track. Madison is a former National short track ice skating champion and has three Midget National Records that are still yet to be broken.

In preparations for the Youth Olympic Games qualifications in Vierumaki Madison has been training twice a week on ice at Xtreme Ice Arena with IHA Head Coach of the Year Markus Frankenberger and his wife Jo who is a coach of the Australian Women’s U18 team that Madison is also a part of.

Madison will be aiming to finish among the top 15 out of 31 other nations competing at the Global Skills Challenge in Vierumaki. The competition features six events that will test the athlete’s pace, accuracy and agility and is a chance for athletes that will not have the opportunity to be a part of the ice hockey team competition in Lillehammer. Madison will be up against some strong competition and is looking forward to doing well so she can put on the green and gold in Lillehammer 2016.
