Irish skater Clara Peters has qualified from the preliminary round of the short programme at the European Figure Skating Championships and will skate in the next phase of the event on Friday.

Skating second of the 22 competitors, the 20-year-old Dubliner’s routine, set to Rachmaninoff’s 'Rhapsody On A Theme of Paganini', went perfectly.

She included two double axels, difficult spins and footwork to score 69.92 points – a new personal best – and finish in eighth.

The top 10 qualified for the next phase of the short programme, which takes place on Friday afternoon.
