STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) - Matthew Neilson and Giulia Paolino know all about the grind of balancing school and the dreams of being an Olympic skater. It’s something the 14- and 15-year-old skaters have been doing for a long time.
Both practice in Strongsville, but have competed all around the country.
Recently the two competed in the US Skating championships in Detroit and Matthew received a metal, he is also a member of Team USA.
Giulia travels to Buffalo often to practice with her partner, but both skaters have strong support from their family.
