When Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay stepped on the ice in Sochi on Tuesday all they needed to do was qualify for the Olympic figure skating short program. The pair representing Team USA has given America a chance to see them in action and every move the on the ice was good. According to the Washington Post on Tuesday the pair would be seen again in Sochi as they qualified for the next round of figure skating.
It’s safe to suggest it won’t be easy for the pair to medal. Facing tough competition, the pair is looking at some serious competition, but they made it to the Olympics and have something to prove.
The journey to the Olympics hasn’t been easy either. Felicia Zhang is a student at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg and she has another job too. The Olympic athlete is a sales clerk for J. Crew. While she might be a star in Sochi, she helps people look their best when they decide on what outfits to purchase. That is right, Felicia Zhang is a fashionista!
The athlete hasn’t mentioned her flair for fashion in Sochi, but that’s probably because she is busy performing for the Winter Olympics. If the pair wanted to move ahead they needed to have the focus on the moment and not offer details about their life back in America.
It’s got to be a proud moment for her coworkers at J. Crew to see their pal in the Winter Olympics. Even her boss would point her out to the customers as he was so proud of the fact. Apparently customers would come up and congratulate her after hearing the good news.
Take a look at Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay on the ice in Sochi. Figure skating looks so flawless, but when viewers hear how hard these athletes work to get to compete for the gold it is amazing! Then they have to impress the judges almost a world away from where they live!
