Gracie Gold Says She's Ashamed Of Her Worlds 2016 Performance

Gracie Gold stuns on the ice in a red hot costume during the Ladie’s Free Program at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships held at TD Garden on Saturday night (April 2) in Boston, Mass.

“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.”

Ashley Wagner Wins Silver Medal at World Figure Skating Championships 2016!

Ashley Wagner Wins Silver Medal at World Figure Skating Championships 2016!

Ashley Wagner just ended the 10-year medal drought for the US Figure Skating Ladies Team!

The 24-year-old skater performed one of the most stunning and clean performances at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships held at TD Garden on Saturday night (April 2) in Boston, Mass.

“It hasn’t hit me yet,” Ashley shared afterwards. “Here I am, the silver medalist in the entire world, it’s insane! It’s been a 10-year drought – to be able to break through that, to br on the podium; I’m elated, I’m excited and I feel like I’ve worked my butt off this season to be here.”

She added, “This is absolutely incredible because that was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I don’t think anyone can prepare you for skating last at the world championships after your rival has skated a great performance, knowing that the entire ladies’ field has skated field has skated pretty phenomenally. To go out there feeling the way that I did, being as terrified as I was, and finding a way to get on the ice and have access to the skater that I’ve been in training this week, that is unbelievable.”

Teammates Gracie Gold placed 4th and Mirai Nagasu was in 10th. Russia’s Evgenia Medvedeva and Anna Pogorilaya were 1st and 3rd, respectively.
