ELLENTON, Fla. - Two Suncoast figure skaters who will represent the United States in the Sochi Olympic Games continued their preparation in Ellenton Wednesday.

Felicia Zhang and her partner Nathan Bartholomay were selected for the team after winning a silver medal at the National Championships in Boston earlier this month.

They sat down with ABC 7 after practice Wednesday and said security concerns are not what’s on the top of their minds.

“Training...keep going, making it through another day, and being one step closer to getting there.”

Despite the security concerns, both skaters say their family members will be in Sochi to cheer them on.
