Chanel Yardley (WA), Julius Raya (QLD) and Vicko Poon (NSW) represented AIR in the 3rd ISU World Development Trophy held in Auckland on 11/4/2015. This was the first time that Australia had attended the event as special guests. Australia did not qualify as per the rules but were allowed to enter athletes with restrictions. Our three athletes did Australia proud and all three established new personal best times. Chanel also won a Gold Medal in the mixed relay event. Thanks goes to IRNSW for loaning the skaters suits for the competition and a private donor of Australian jacket hoodies for the team. It is hoped that after negotiations with the ISU that next year, Australia will be invited to attend the event with few or no limitations.
