Hails from: Arcadia, California
Occupation: Figure Skater and newly-crowned U.S. Champion
Known for: Being the second-youngest U.S. champ in history at 14, standing all of 4’11″ tall, an infectious smile, “extraordinary posture…when she skates” (according to Peggy Fleming), being so durned cute we just want to squeeze her.
After falling on her opening jump in the long program, Mirai regrouped and skated beautifully, later telling reporters, “The fall on the double axel was like a kick in the butt,” she said. “After that, I was like, `Attack!’”
