SUGAR LAND - Summer hasn’t even arrived, but Katy-Taylor product Jonathan Garcia is focusing on next year’s Olympic "Winter" games.

Growing up in Katy, Garcia was a top "in-line" skater but he switched over to racing on ice 6 years ago after US Olympic officials urged him to try it.

The first couple of years he struggled, but he hasn’t struggled since. In fact, not only has he become a member of the US national speed skating team, he’s become one of the nation’s best short track skaters which is a very physical rough and tumble version of the sport.

Matt Musil has his story.
