Kim Yuna inspired little Mongolian girl to aim for the Olympics

A 13-year-old Mongolian girl is setting a big goal to represent her home country at the Olympics in figure skating. Currently O.Iveel, lives in USA with family. She decided to become a figure skater after seeing the famous South Korean athlete Kim Yuna win the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 on TV when she was just three years old. From that moment on, O.Iveel committed herself on figure skating.

She improved quickly in skating and within a year met the requirements for becoming a member of Colorado State Figure Skating Union.  O.Iveel won her first gold medal from her figure skating club in her age category. Since then she won silver medal from Figure Skating Championships among Denver clubs in the technique category, gold medal from Colorado State Championships and silver medal from Colorado Cup. Her past achievements have opened the door to become a member of American Figure Skating Union and to begin training under a highly skilled coach.

O.Iveel will compete in the ISU Junior Grand Prix Gdańsk 2019 in Poland on 18 September and the Grand Prix Zagreb-Croatia on 25-28 September.
