Pasadena Figure Skating Club member Mirai Nagasu has been named to the 2018 U.S. Olympic team! U.S. Figure Skating chose her to represent our country in PyeongChang based on her silver medal placement at 2018 Nationals in San Jose, combined with her strong body of work in recent seasons.
Now that Mirai's made the team, we need to help her have a solid support system in place in PyeongChang. The venue for the Winter Olympics is an expensive place to travel to, and lodging will be costly as well. (U.S. Figure Skating estimates that it will cost about $11,000 for one attendee.) We want to make sure that anybody Mirai needs to be there with her, including her family and her boyfriend, is able to afford the trip and be there for her!
We are grateful for any and all amounts that you can contribute. We are all so fortunate to have enjoyed Mirai's performances over the years, so let's make sure she has what she needs to deliver stellar performances one more time at the Olympic Winter Games. Thank you everyone!
