Miho Takagi keeping focus on pursuit of 3,000-meter speedskating gold

The 23-year-old, who in addition to the team pursuit is also entered in the 1,000, her signature 1,500 and the mass start, became the first skater from her country to win the 3,000 on the World Cup circuit in Calgary in December.
