Christina Gao: No Regrets
Christina Gao ’16-17 used to be a skater first, a student second. Ever since her parents signed her up for figure-skating lessons at age seven, her life has been as much of a balancing act as the sport itself. Growing up, the slender girl from Cincinnati often missed school to make time for her training sessions in Kentucky. In high school, Gao moved with her father to Toronto, where she could take advantage of the longer ice time to train.
