Synchronized skating

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- More than 170 teams took to the ice this weekend to compete at the Midwest Pacific Synchronized Skating Sectionals.

91 teams went on to the national competition in Minneapolis.

"It takes kids all the way from 5 and 6 years old through.... we have adult and master teams so you know there's probably adults into their 60's or 70's that are skating," Eastern Iowa Skating Club President Tammi Hoover said.

The routines were judged on how well the team matched actions and how they included certain elements like staying in a straight line and making shapes.
