With all the excitement the Winter Olympics bring, we thought it'd be nice to bring you a story of a local girl inspired by the athletes.

Skating Rinks are all the rage these days, thanks in part to the Winter Olympics. One local girl was bit by the figure skating "bug" four years ago, when she watched the Olympics and thought "i want to do that".

She asked mom if she could, but was told "no" because the closest rink was an hour away.

"She kept insisting that it was what she really wanted to do. So, i finally gave in and told her we could find a once- a-week saturday morning class."says Katie, Laura's mom.

Laura started with one class a week. Mom says she would ask every day if "today was the day she skated?" Her energy and enthusiasm haven't wavered. For the past year and half she has been coached by former Olympian Mark Cockerell. And most recently, Elena Cockerell, a member of the Russian National and World Figure Skating Team.

We asked Elena what she and her students think of the Olympics and, of course, the figure skating events.

"The kids dream about it, and i dream with them too. They see the performances on tv and they talk about the medals"

And it seems Laura is having fun as well. She says her favorite things to do while skating are twisting, turning, going fast and having fun with her friends. And she may not even realize it, but mom says she's learning a lot in the process.

"She's had to learn how to fall and get back up again, because they tend to fall a lot while practicing jumps. She's learning how to work hard, that's for sure" Laura and mom now travel to Wooster four days a week for lessons. She practices ballet two hours a week in addition to her lessons, which total ten hours a week. We wish Laura the best of luck on her Olympic dreams!
