Originally aired on WTTG-TV – October 9, 2019

At just 8-years-old, a Northern Virginia girl is already taking the figure skating world by storm. Sophia Bezkorovainaya started skating when she was 4-years-old and she now trains at least five hours a day with hopes of competing in the Olympics some day.

As of this past spring, she is placed in seven national level events across the east coast and on top of this, Sophia manages to balance school work from an online public school in Virginia, Virtual Virtual Academy.
