GREAT Britain’s best senior male figure skater proved he remains the man to beat after being crowned champion at the British Figure Skating Championships in Sheffield.

Phillip Harris, who is based at International School of Skating at Planet Ice Coventry, took top spot at the event over the weekend.

Another Coventry skater, Harry Mattick, took third place in the Senior Men competition.

More than 150 of Britain’s finest young skaters took to the ice to secure British qualification points.

After the event Harris tweeted: “Great to start the season off with a win! A lot of improvements to make, but a lot of positives too.”

Nick Sellwood, chief executive of the National Ice Skating Association (NISA), said: “Those who took part really lifted themselves with some superb jumps spins and foot combinations.

“It was a great way to kick off the new season and we look forward to seeing the skaters perform to the same standard at international competitions in 2014/15.”
