Today, I was lucky enough to meet up with the man who has inspired my love for the Olympic Games since the age of 5 years old. Frank Carroll is a member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame winning Olympic medals coaching athletes such as Michelle Kwan, Evan Lysacek, Gracie Gold, and Denis Ten but, also happens to be my great uncle. I use to spend my time watching the Winter Olympics at home hoping to catch a glimpse of my Uncle Frank on the television and now getting to watch Olympic figure skating next to him was an amazing experience.
ps. For those who are interested his skater Denis Ten (Kazakhstan) will beginning his competition in men’s singles figure skating tomorrow (2/16)
