Ashley Wagner shows off her silver medal during the 2013 Skate America held at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday (October 19) and Sunday (October 20) in Detroit, Mich.
The 22-year-old Olympic hopeful grabbed the second place spot after Mao Asada during the Grand Prix kick off event with a total of 69.26 points.
“I was actually pretty terrified because it was a high-risk element for me,” Ashley shared of her triple flip-triple toe loop combination in her short program.
She added, “But before I went out there, [Coach Rafael Arutunian] told me go do it: ‘Skate the triple-toe like you know how to.’ And I just kind of turned the rest off and went into auto-pilot.”
Ashley is also pictured during the USOC Media Summit in Park City, Utah last month.
