Huge congratulations to ICA member Margarita Sweeney-Baird, who has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the New Year Honours’ List.
Margarita is chairperson and founder of Inclusive Skating and the driving force behind the Global Project for Inclusive Skating and the Charity.
A former Scottish ladies skating champion and skating coach in the UK, she originally took a year-long sabbatical from her distinguished legal career to mastermind this project. The sabbatical started in 2010 and was extended because the competition format she created worked better than she could ever have hoped.
Margarita’s daughter Juliana is an Inclusive Skater.
Well done Margarita and well deserved!
