Promising figure skater Daniel Linden has been inducted into a prestigious sporting apprenticeship programme to help him achieve his potential.
The National Ice Skating Association (NISA) have launched the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence which provides training and development for talented young athletes aged 16 to 19 years old.
The 16-year-old was one of ten skaters inducted at a special event at the Football Association headquarters in Burton on Trent alongside nine other youngsters chosen by NISA.
Linden, who lives in Winchmore Hill, said: “I’m so happy to be one of NISA’s chosen figure skaters and I can’t wait to get started.”
Nick Sellwood, chief executive of NISA, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for these ten skaters.
“The AASE programme helps develop and nurture elite athletes and it’s the perfect programme for aspiring athletes.
“It also provides opportunities for second career development, should an athlete fall short of their ultimate sporting goal or chose to follow an alternative career path.”
