Slovakian inline skaters choose Timaru to train

by Stu Piddington (Fe. 18, 2010)
Two Slovakian inline skaters have travelled half way around the world to be coached in Timaru.

SLOVAKIAN SKATERS: Renata Karabova (left) and Renata Zmijova are keen to improve their style and stamina under the watchful eye of Timaru's international coach Bill Begg.

Renata Karabova is Slovakia's top skater and the 22-year-old has brought 14-year-old Renata Zmijova with her for the experience.

They will be under the tutorage of renowned international coach Bill Begg and use the Caroline Bay skating rink as their base for the month-long visit.

Karabova finished 10th overall in the World Inline Cup, with a best individual placing of seventh in Rennes WIC, France.

Begg is renowned for his technical experience, having coached a host of countries, so the pair are keen to improve their styles.

Karabova has raced once against Begg's daughter Nicole, a double world champion, and is keen to spend some time with her as well.

"I want to go home a better skater," she said.

Karabova, who is studying sport at the Univerzita Paula Josezefa Safarika, said there was increasing interest in inline skating in her country.

Fluent in English, she is also keen to see as much of the South Island as possible during their stay.

Originally it was hoped both skaters could compete in last month's Tour of Timaru but unfortunately that was not possible.

Instead they will get an opportunity to see Canterbury up close in the two-day Six Pistas Tour that will see the skaters race in the Rollerdrome in Christchurch, Tinwald, the Temuka Domain, Caroline Bay, Timaru's Caledonian Grounds and the Waimate cycle track.

Begg said it was great the pair could make it to Timaru and he hoped to eventually set up a international skating school in Timaru that would operate in the European off-season.

"The track would need to be replaced but we have a strong club now with willing workers."

While the focus was often on his daughter, Begg said the interest in inline skating was growing in South Canterbury.

"At the weekend we had 42 kids at the learn-to-skate and 18 speedskaters working, which is great. Cheryl (Begg's wife) is also in discussions with four schools about running a skating programme and we supply the skates." Slovakian inline skaters choose Timaru to train
