The duo were part of the Dunedin team competing in the South Island Figure Skating Championships in Queenstown at the weekend.
There are 65 years between them.
Hoseit (70) won the Adult Silver 3 section, while Matilda (5) came ninth in the Kiwiskate Ladies section.Hoseit skated when she was younger and is a former New Zealand champion.
After moving away for a long time, she returned to the sport when she shifted back to Dunedin 15 years ago.
She has since been to many international events and said the adult competitions had grown in numbers dramatically.
It was not as easy as it used to be, she said — although for most people just being able to skate at that age would be impressive.
"It certainly gets a lot harder," she said.
"In my head I can do what I used to do. However, my body does not respond — there’s a little person in my head saying ‘no, no, no’."
She coached the youngsters in the Kiwiskate programme and said it was great seeing children such as Matilda coming through.
The sport in Dunedin was as strong as it had ever been and starting young gave children time to reach the top level, she said.
