A roller skater from Taunton came home from Taiwan as a world championship medal winner.
Taunton’s Katelyn Rodgers, along with her skating partner Spencer Swetnam, earned bronze medals for their performances during the junior class team dance competition at the World Roller Figure Skating Championships held this month in Tapei City.
“I thought we skated very well,” said Rodgers, 18, who is a student at Boston College. “My coach and partner feel the same way. We are very proud of the way we skated.”
Rodgers and Swetnam, a 19-year-old skater from Portland, Ore., whom she met in 2011 at a national competition, came in third behind two teams from Italy, a country known for producing world-class figure roller skaters.
