Why James Min?
James is a skater worthy of writing about because of his immense training ethic and ‘winning mindset’.
In addition to this post, I will be creating profiles on other skaters, coaches, judges and various figure skating names worthy of covering.
My aim is for these posts to give you valued insight into influential people found both locally and internationally.
While you may know some of the skaters personally, these posts are relevant because hearing stories from other people can be motivational and help you to develop in new ways.
Lets get started..

My Interview with James
Why did I want to interview James?
James is one of the most dedicated and hardest working skaters I’ve ever seen.
His success can be directly linked to the work he puts into every single training session.
He is focussed on the mission and he is constantly looking for new ways to maximise his training and attitude.
This level of commitment is inspirational to everyone around him and it is worth understanding what makes James tick.
James was kind enough to share some of his time with me over Skype.
Most notably James talked about his challenges with nerves in Japan and how he already has a plan to successfully manage them if the situation were to arise again.
