Oceania Figure Skating Competition

June 09, 2024

It was the Melbourne Sports Photography team's pleasure to photograph the 2024 Oceania Figure Skating Competition held at O'Brien Icehouse on 29, 30, and 31 May 2024. The competition included skaters from around Australia, New Zealand, and a good contingent from further afield including places such as Malaysia, The Philippines, and Singapore.

The standard of skating across the 3 days of competition was high, leading to some unique and impactful images.

While figure skating is a relatively small sport (currently!) in Australia, it is a big sport on a worldwide basis and attracts a lot of attention each time the Winter Olympics rolls around. We will be watching the skating at the next Winter Olympics with a much greater appreciation for the ability of the skaters and the photographers!
