Ashley Wagner Wins National Figure Skating Championships; Gracie Gold In Second

Ashley Wagner reacts with glee after nailing her free skate during the Ladie’s competition at the 2015 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships held at Greensboro Coliseum on Saturday night (January 24) in Greensboro, N.C.

The 23-year-old skater won the national title, beating Gracie Gold, who came in second, and Karen Chen, in third.

“This, of my three titles, this one tastes the sweetest,” Ashley shared after the competition with press. “This is the one that means the most to me, because this is the one that shows every single person that doubts me, every single person that says I’m too old, every single person that says I’m not capable of being a leading lady — this shows them that they need to shut their mouths and watch me skate.”

Polina Edmunds placed 4th and Mirai Nagasu slipped down to 10th.
