Comes after positive display indoors at international Arena Geisingen event in Holland

By Pete Woodhouse

Wisbech Inline Speed Skating’s Arthur Buckler completed his back-to-back European race events with a dominant display in Germany.

He took part in the 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000m Pupil B boys category. In treacherous conditions the youngster from Wisbech emerged victorious in each race to become the overall winner of the category.

This comes after a positive display indoors at the first international event at Arena Geisingen in Holland in the Pupil B boys category (a move up from last year).

In that event he finished in overall 4th position, equal on points with third place.

Team mates Eve and Lucy McInerney in Geisingen also took some positives from the extremely competitive indoor event in the Junior Girls category racing with some of the best skaters in the world.

Lucy gained a new personal best time after she improved her Flying lap 200m sprint by 2 seconds over last year.

Eve completed the 500m sprint race in an impressive time of 48.773 seconds and found herself just 0.1 seconds off the qualifying time for the European Championships.

All the team are now back on home soil and ready for the first outdoor race of the British season in Birmingham this coming weekend and are hoping for dry conditions.
