ELLENTON (FOX 13) -

Two Olympic ice skaters from Ellenton have returned home from Sochi.

Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay placed 12th overall in the Olympics.

Today, they were welcomed home with a party in Ellenton, where they live.

They say Sochi was an experience, but they are happy to be back in Florida.

"It was great. It was everything I ever dreamed of, just a fantastic experience," Zhang said.

"It's amazing to have this kind of community support," Bartholomay added.

Unlike some of their other USA teammates, the skaters say they did not get stuck in any bathrooms or elevators in Russia.

You may remember both of those things happened to bobsledder Johnny Quinn when he tweeted out pictures.
