HOUSTON - An up-and-coming Houston ice skater could one day go for the gold at the Winter Olympics.

Fifteen-year-old Benjamin Shou trains six days a week in hopes of attending the 2018 Winter Olympics. He represented Ice Skate USA in the intermediate men's division at the 2014 U.S. Championships in Boston, Massachusetts and finished in eighth place.

KPRC Local 2's Ruben Galvan got a chance to catch up with the impressive young skater at Memorial City Mall Thursday morning.
