Kimberly (Popp) Marfleet began skating at the age of 3 with the North Delta Sungod Skating Club. She became a competitive Figure Skater at 9 years of age. Both Kim and her partner were B.C. Champions for five straight years at the Pre-Novice, Novice and Junior Dance Levels. They achieved Bronze, Silver, and Gold at Western Divisionals and ultimately competed at the Canadian Nationals in Novice and Junior Dance.
In 1988, Kim and her partner won a Silver medal for Novice Dance at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships in Victoria. They were honored to be invited to an intense National Dance Seminar that included the highest level coaching with the top Dance Coaches in Canada. Later that year, they were chosen to represent Canada at the Junior World Championships in Sarajevo; however, unfortunately Kim’s partner fractured his ankle just days before they were scheduled to leave.
