Skating’s Heart of Gold

Skating’s Heart of Gold

This  week skaters are taking the stage at TD Garden in Boston. Before the competition even started their was drama and shake ups with injuries, doping allegations, and withdrawals.

One such withdrawal led to Mirai Nagasu stepping up to the plate for Team USA. Thursday night she delivered. Maybe not in standings, she showed the world and her own federation what passion, dedication, and never saying die stand for.

She skated a clean short with not just the poise she is known for but a newfound fierceness, that one who has been knocked down so many times, but yet refuses to stay there.

She is an example of what true strength is. What an athlete and yes a skater girl is truly made of.

I couldn’t be prouder of her. Regardless of what happens Saturday, she is already a winner. She has sent a message to the USFSA that no matter how much you try to insert politics into a sport, true sportsmanship will always shine.

Go Mirai!

I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!
