Japan's First Figure-skating Gold

I read from the Time magazine about the gold medalist Shizuka Arakawa. It says, "Arakawa, 24, considered retiring in 2004 and finished ninth at last year's world championships. But she stuck with it to please her dad and wound up scoring Japan's first figure-skating gold and becoming a national hero."

Parents' expectation could be very powerful. Using it wisely can produce great results.
