Leonardo and Pilar delivered a winning demonstration to figure skating fans in their native Mexico recently. The competition just happened to coincide with a family holiday. 

It was productive interlude as the teenage Sooke residents placed first in the ice dance category, while Leo placed first in the free skate.

In both disciplines the artistic athletes have graduated from the novice level, and are now working at the junior level.
