MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Fresh off last month's Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, Suncoast figure skaters Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay are gearing up for their next big competition.

The duo left for Japan over the weekend, and Monday was their first practice. The duo will compete at the World Championships in Saitama, Japan later this month.

The couple recently accepted a spot on the world team and have since been preparing. They originally were alternates to compete on the team, but one of the pairs that was supposed to attend had to pull out of the competition because of injury.
