An image from a shoot with Clara Peters, Irish figure skater. Clara began skating when she was 7 years old, and moved to the US to train at the age of 17. She has been there ever since. Like all sports, skating requires serious dedication and it’s beginning to pay off as this year she is ranked 29th at Worlds. She is about to turn 21 and her aim now, as it has been since she was very little, is to become Ireland’s first ice skating competitor in a Winter Olympics – that of Sochi 2014. Let’s wish her some luck.
