Anthony DeLuca rolls out of bed around 2:30 most mornings. Though it's still dark when he steps through his front doors by 3:15, DeLuca can look to his left and still see his family's emus, cows, horses and chickens as he walks down a rocky driveway to his car. About 15 hours later, DeLuca will return to his Keymar home, about 10 miles north of Frederick, to care for those animals. For now, he's off to Laurel Roller Skating Center to start his day with a two-hour training session that begins at 4:30 a.m. DeLuca's morning routine is atypical for the average American 23-year old - but most 23-year-olds don't have a shot to become a world champion figure roller skater like DeLuca does.
