Markham figure skater captures gold

Markham figure skater Vienna Vidinovski landed a gold medal at the 2024 Skate Canada Challenge.

Nearly 200 skaters from across Canada laced up their skates for the competition, which was held February 1 to 4 in Oakville.

“This feels really good, almost unreal,” Vidinovski, a student at St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School, says of taking top spot in the pre-novice women category. “I was thinking I’d come top five to 10. I really wasn’t expecting gold. I’m really proud of landing my triple toe in my free program.”

Vidinovski practises before and after school and occasionally even needs to leave school early for her athletic commitments. “It takes a village and wouldn’t have been possible with all the support from the school and teachers,” Vienna’s mom says.

The York Catholic District School Board extends its congratulations to Vidinovski
