A member of the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club was able to “Rock the Rink” Thursday night along with a handful of championship figure skaters.
The show, headlined by Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, included a star-studded cast of nine of the world’s best including Patrick Chan and Elvis Stojko.
The tour selected a Special Olympics athlete to join the show in each of the tour stops across the country and Moriah Van’t Land was chosen in Lethbridge.
She performed to “Give Me a 10” from Beethoven’s Wig and at the end of the show was welcomed back to the ice to take a bow with the cast.
When asked how it was, she replied “it was magical. Happy glitter magic!”
The 13 year old and has been with the Lethbridge Skating Club for the past seven years and won Gold at the 2019 Special Olympics Alberta Winter Games in Calgary.
