U.S. Olympian Hometown Spotlight: Polina Edmunds' San Jose, California
Olympian: Polina Edmunds
Event: Figure skating
Hometown: San Jose's Almaden Valley
15-year-old figure skating sensation Polina Edmunds hails from Almaden Valley, a hilly, bucolic community just south of central San Jose, California. Edmunds's meteoric rise is at least partially attributable to the fact that she lives a stone's throw from world-class coaching and skating facilities in San Jose.
