At the recent U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose, California, the crowd was treated to a preview of skaters who will contend for the Olympic team in 2014. One particular skater had the audience buzzing about her potential -- 16-year-old Ashley Cain, from Coppell, Texas.
Cain has had to sacrifice attending school in pursuit of her goals, but the ambitious 11th grader still hopes to attend college one day. "I went to normal school up until 8th grade but then my traveling schedule for skating became too much. Now I do at least four hours of online school every day through Texas Tech University Independent School."
