Williamston's Hannah Miller may not be headed to Sochi, but her Olympic dream is still very much alive.
The 17 year-old high school junior placed 9th overall in last week's U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston. She says those minor mishaps she had on the ice, happened during jumps that come easy to her. But she's not surprised she didn't make it to the top three, because she didn't have a triple-triple in her program.
"I knew the Olympics were going to be a long shot, so it wasn't too much of a disappointment. Of course it would have been awesome. but I want to go when I can compete with the other girls and able to be on that podium and without a triple triple that wouldn't have happened. So, I'm just ready to get back to work now and get those triple triples so I can be competitive someday."
Last year, Miller placed 10th overall at the National Championships. She had to cancel an international competition last season to have surgery on her ankle.
