Wisbech Inline Speed Skating Club prospect Eve McInerney will represent Great Britain at the Flanders Grand Prix International Roller Speed Skating event in Belgium next month.

McInerney has had a successful year at both the indoor and outdoor British Championships where she won gold at both events to become British Champion in the relay races.

She started skating aged two and has been skating competitively since the age of eight.

The McInerney family are no strangers to success with the club - Eve’s father Mike became European Champion at 18 as well as British Champion several times. He holds the British title for the men’s relay and finished in the top 20 in the Masters category in the World Championships earlier this year.
