Christina Chitwood and Mark Hanretty welcome you to their official website!
Although separated by an ocean, Mark and Christina were brought together by their coaches, Jimmy Young and Sandy Hess. Jimmy and Sandy had coached together in Denver a few years back and spoke with each other about a talented male student Jimmy had in England and a talented female student Sandy had in Colorado Springs, Colorado, who were both looking for partners. Mark and Christina then began e-mailing each other in November 2005. They developed a friendship by e-mail before their first meeting and tryout the end of December in Edinburgh, Scotland. After their first session skating together, Mark and Christina decided to become an ice dance team. They began their skating partnership on New Year’s Eve 2005.
Christina and Mark competed as a senior ice dance team representing Great Britain for four seasons. They were international and national medalists. They were also European and World competitors. In June 2010, they retired from competitive skating and became professional skaters.
Christina and Mark hope you enjoy your visit to their website. Please leave a message for them in their guestbook so they know you stopped by!
