World figure skating hall of fame member and four-time world champion figure skater Kurt Browning was in Sioux Lookout with figure skating groups from the region over the weekend.

Browning, who is also well known for his role in Stars on Ice held seminars for local skating groups from Sioux Lookout, Dryden, Kenora and Keewatin during the Saturday and Sunday sessions.

“I don’t care how long you’ve been coaching, you always learn something from these people. They’re amazing and they know all kinds of tricks of the trade and he’s amazing for the coaches, too, because he’s so helpful,” said Debbie Novak, coach of the Keewatin Skating Club.

The day also included mental health classes presented by Firefly and nutrition classes from the Northwestern Health Unit. Skaters also took part in ballet classes.
