FREDERICK, Md. - Every four years when the winter games take place, rinks like Frederick Skate see their ice skating classes fill up with locals inspired to hit the ice.
"Olympics have influenced me to come out here because I think it's cool and they amaze me," said Avery Hines, a Frederick teen.
So far, the U.S. has racked up 19 medals at the Sochi Olympics.
"I like to watch with my family and see people perform," added Hines.
