mirai nagasu wins u.s. figure skating championships

On Saturday, 14-year-old Mirai Nagasu wowed the crowd and won the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, becoming the second-youngest woman to win the U.S. title: Nagasu wins U.S. title, gives skating newest star.

Though she won the junior title as a complete unknown last year, the 4-foot-11 skater definitely wasn't the favorite to win this weekend... but kicked some serious ass on the ice. And to think, the girl is just starting out.

Looks like she's got a heck of a future ahead of her in this sport. She will not, however, be competing at the world championships in March because she's too young. Skaters now must be 15 by the previous July 1, and Mirai doesn’t turn 15 until April. Next year, it's all hers.
