He said the event staged at Cali City will feature four more Indian skaters — Boppana Nishank (figure skating), Arun Kumar, Farheen (both free style and pair skating) and Anup Kumar Yama (inline free skating).

“Tatiya will take part in the figure skating event and she will be performing as per the theme given by the judges. She came to us six years ago and from then she has been regularly winning medals for Andhra Pradesh. She hones her skills at the skating rink behind the DRRMC Indoor Stadium,” said Mr Durga Prasad.

The teenager, a junior Intermediate student with Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala, qualified for the world championship by faring well in the selection meet held in Ahmedabad early this year. She also took part in the earlier edition of the world championship in China but could not win a medal. He said Tatiya will be trained by former Indian coach Satyanarayana of Vizag.

SAAP board member B. Hanumantha Rao and District Sports Development Officer P. Ramakrishna congratulated her for making it to the premier event.

Shubhra Tatiya will compete in the World Artistic Roller-skating Championship to be held at Cali City from September 19 to 25
