Local Ice Skater Competes for the Gold

Welcome to the Vancouver, Miss Mirai Nagasu! Nagasu, a 16 year old from Arcadia, CA,  is competing in her 1st Olympics this year, and it looks like shes a contender to medal.  And to think, her parents, who own a local sushi bar in Arcadia, almost missed her debut on the world stage due to the economic  downturn,  but thankfully, Panisonic stepped up to help fund the trip for her proud and hard working parents. All of us down here are cheering for you, Mirai!
