Filipino skater Michael Martinez has claimed his second consecutive Triglav Trophy gold in Slovenia.

Martinez bagged the gold in free skating and bested his six competitors in the Triglav Trophy International Figure Skating Competition in Jesenice, Slovenia.

“Thank you for your support and prayers,” the 18-year old Olympic skater posted on his Facebook account.

Last year, Martinez, who ranked 33rd in the world, also bagged gold in the same competition.

The Triglav Trophy is an annual international figure skating competition.
