Ross Miner, who will start competing Wednesday when the men’s short program begins, showed a love of the limelight early.
Although his technical skills needed work, his coach Peter Johansson, saw a quality in him that made him invite Miner to train with him in Boston.
“He was a crowd pleaser,” Johansson remembered.
So skills weren’t as important as that ability to take the attention and shine. Miner did call himself a show off.
We’ll soon know if he’ll please the crowd at Budweiser Gardens.
Miner is the silver medallist from the U.S. championships.
The men’s competition starts at about 5 p.m.
