“Obviously I’m really embarrassed and I’m really ashamed with how I’m skated,” the 20-year-old athlete shared after her performance, which left her in 4th place after the competition ended.
Gracie added, “It was just one of those really, really tragic skates that you feel like you can’t do anything right. I feel really sorry for Boston and for the United States that I let them down when they needed me most.”
When asked about her Olympic shots for the 2018 games, Gracie shared, “It’s appearing less and less likely that that’s in my cards, but of course I’ll keep trying and training hard. I am in the top in the world. I still have hopes for (the 2018 Olympics) and 2018 podium. … I have potential, it just has to happen at the right time.”
