Jenna’s skating story
Now retired from the professional figure skating circuit, Jenna McCorkell coaches up-and-coming skaters around the world, also teaching at training camps with her husband throughout the year.
Having started skating in Coleraine aged seven, Jenna immediately developed a passion for the sport and was picked up by the National GB Squad when she was just ten, making her the youngest ever skater to make the team. Aged 14, she then became the first female skater from Northern Ireland to compete in the World Junior Championships.
Over the years, Jenna has competed successfully on both a national and international level and is Northern Ireland’s most successful female ice skater. An eleven-time British national champion, she has also won seven senior international medals, including gold at the Ondrej Nepela Memorial and at the Ice Challenge in Graz.
Coming from a very business-oriented family, and with oodles of passion and ambition, it was perhaps inevitable that once the professional skating stopped, Jenna would seek out her next exciting challenge…
