Hammonds Plains ice-skater spins for kids

She spins this weekend in Poland to break the Guinness World Record and has been raising funds for CDN charity for violence-affected youth (Leave Out Violence). Well done Olivia and best of luck!


Apparently, ‘not her fastest spin’ but it is super impressive! I had the pleasure of interviewing inspiring, local ice-skater, Olivia Oliver.

Passionate and determined, she plans to break the Guinness World Record in Warsaw, Poland, spinning to raise money for children who’ve experienced violence.

Find out in Sept. 23 issue of Community Herald, why she’s attempting more than 5 spins-per-second for 300 rotations in a minute, and who else she’s been helping, all while navigating the waters of elementary school and being a tween.
