Going For The Gold: Tim Dolensky

TEXAS - A figure skater from Georgia is training in Texas and he has his sights set on making the Olympic team.

Tim Dolensky, Team USA Figure Skater, “I feel like a musical education really helps you bring out nuances and just trains your ear to really listen to every little detail.”

Peter Cain, Tim Dolensky's Coach said, “He's very lyrical on the ice but he's a great athlete, he's a big jumper.”

“One of the things that I tell myself is you have to do your stuff. You know that's kind of what it boils down to, you have to do your stuff in the moment.” Said Dolensky.

Dolensky is from Kennesaw, Georgia. He just moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area earlier this year to train at a new rink. He says he was on the brink of quitting the sport prior to the move, and needed a positive change.

Tim is gunning for the number three spot on the men's Olympic team, and knows he has his work cut out.

"One of the things that I tell myself is you have to do your stuff," Dolensky said. "You know that's kind of what it boils down to -- you have to do your stuff in the moment."

Dolensky just wrapped up a national qualifying competition in Boston, and then it's onto training for nationals in January. That's where he will find out if he'll be skating for gold in South Korea.
