    Meeting, and Googling, a real Asian Pioneer by Ben Fong-Torres
    May 30, 2011 What a great way to end a terrible month. Here it was, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and I spent most of May with a cold, a bout of laryngitis and general misery.

    The top three finishers at the national figure skating championships have always been, barring injury, the skaters named to the US Olympic team. But not this year.

    Mirai Nagasu, a 20-year-old skater who finished fourth at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, took third place at the nationals competition this weekend. The only top finisher with Olympic experience, she was also the only figure skater not to fall or make a major error.
