Ice Dancers from Palm Beach Ice Works headed to World Juniors
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Only in a few corners of Palm Beach County can you find a sheet of ice.
But that's where a world renown ice dancing teacher calls home - and his prized pupils are on their way to one of the biggest competitions in the world.
Ice dancing partners Hannah Grace Cook and Temirlan Yerzhanob train at Palm Beach Ice Works, and the pair are headed to the World Junior Championships in Taiwan this weekend.
Hannah is from Texas, Tema is from Kazakhstan, but they've come to West Palm, for ice dancing teacher Evgeni Platov - a two-time ice dancing gold medalist from Russia.
These three from all over the world have found the perfect chemistry, right here in Palm Beach County, and now can go win a world championship.
The pair will compete for Tema's home country of Kazakhstan. Hannah is working on getting dual citizenship, so they can make a run for the Olympics.
