U.S. National Champion Mirai Nagasu has been named one of America's "most promising athletes" by Forbes magazine, according to an International Figure Skating forum. The posting says Nagasu was the only figure skater to be selected by the mag, which is trying to pinpoint the next big thing in sports.

Also, congratulations are due to our favorite dancing queen, Kristi Yamaguchi. Sports Illustrated reports that she will be honored with the Sonya Henie award. The IFS forum also reports that:

Yamaguchi was selected as the winner of the Sonya Henie award this year because she has brought recognition to the sport of figure skating in a positive and favorable manner. The award is presented to a female, professional skater.
