Kreuger grew up in Peters Township, skating at rinks across western Pennsylvania.

He had hoped to go to Sochi in the last Winter Olympics, but illness held him back.

Now he's healthy and focused on skating well on the biggest world stage.

"It's my first Games, so I'm not putting any expectations,” he said. “The only expectation I'm putting on myself is to not be afraid to skate and do what I can do.”
