“I eat, sleep and drink ice skating. Then, I do my homework,” 16-year-old Mirai Nagasu of Arcadia told our staff reporter Stacey Wang.
On Tuesday, members of the Pasadena Figure Skating Club gathered in Arcadia to watch their friend and peer perform in the women’s figure skating competition at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
Here she is on the ice in Vancouver, during her short program performance Tuesday and, further below, during a training session on Sunday.
Nagasu’s race for a medal is becoming a stretch — but definitely not out of reach. In order to medal, Nagasu will need not only a near-perfect long program Thursday, but also one of the front-runners will need to fall behind, the Associated Press reports.
