Leaside’s synchronized skating teams go under the name Meraki and have plenty of talent both on and off the ice. The coach of the Intermediate team, MK MacDougall knows a thing or two about synchronized skating after 15 years as a skater on the Ontario legendary team known as black ice.
All of MK’s experience as an athlete has been rolled into her career as a coach. At the 2018 National Synchronized Skating Championships, the Meraki Intermediate team won the national title. Meraki then went on to be inducted into the Leaside Sports Hall of Fame at a ceremony in the Fall of 2018.
The training never stops for this Ontario team and in this interview, taken at their pre-Holiday gala, MK talks about the importance of the support from Skate Ontario.
Congratulations on your induction Meraki Intermediate! Skate Ontario is proud of you!
