    Future Olympian


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     anonymousMN told me, 'She is 14 and began skating when she was 4-years-old. She wasn’t very graceful until she was about 8-years-old. In fact, we tried to get her to try hockey instead. She chose to stick with figure skating and began competing in basic skills competitions. She has been competing with a synchronized skating team for 6 years and competing as an individual skater for 5 years. She made the varsity synchro line in 7th grade (the earliest you can try out). Her goal is to compete at a national level. She is a long ways from that goal, but she is very dedicated and judges really seem to love her personality. She skates most of the year, even though it’s a struggle to find ice time and we have to go to 3 different rinks. We drive 22 miles to be at her lessons by 6:30am, sometimes earlier. She participates in track in the spring and cross-country in the fall to fill her off-ice time.'
