BRADENTON, Fla. - After Manatee County skating duo Nate Bartholomay and Felicia Zhang represented the United States at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, they're getting their own day back here at home.

The skaters, who train at the Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex, didn't end up medaling in Sochi, but the Manatee County Commission honored them Tuesday by declaring the day "Zhang and Bartholomay Day".

From here the duo will head to Japan next month to compete in the World Championships.
