Figure Skater Ashley Wagner Isn't Apologizing in ESPN's Body Issue About The Sport, She's Showcasing It

To us, Ashley Wagner is the face of figure skating right now, and in her essay about the sport, you can see her love for it.

The athlete, who is the reigning U.S. National Silver Medalist, defended her words in the mag on twitter, when one site took the piece like Ashley was apologizing for even being in the sport to begin with.

She wasn’t — at all.

“Let’s be clear, I’m making no apologies for my sport!” Ashley wrote on Twitter. “I’m excited to take this opportunity to showcase the athleticism of skating.”

Definitely read Ashley‘s essay, which will give you more appreciation for figure skating and Ashley.

Ashley is also pictured below with BFF, fellow skater and choreographer Adam Rippon, and gymnast Aly Raisman, at the BODY at ESPYs Party in Hollywood on Tuesday (July 11).

FYI: Aly is wearing Alexis Bittar jewelry.

Meryl Davis & Charlie White's Decision To Not Compete in 2018 Olympics Took Over Three Years

Meryl Davis & Charlie White's Decision To Not Compete in 2018 Olympics Took Over Three Years

Meryl Davis isn’t the one to make rash decision — especially when it comes to her career as an Olympic ice dancer.

So when she and partner Charlie White announced that they won’t be trying to defend their gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, you need to know that it took them a long time to get to that point.

“It isn’t so black and white,” she shared in a new interview. “Charlie and I took until about a month and a half, two months ago to decide for sure to announce that we weren’t going to go back to the Olympics.”

That’s over three years of weighing options and going through all their pro and cons lists.

Meryl adds, “For us, it really is a sort of intangible feeling…We took that time, and were sort of blown in the direction of new adventures.”

And adventures there are…when Meryl isn’t teaching young kids learn to skate through the Figure Skating in Harlem and Figure Skating in Detroit programs, she’s working on her anthropology degree, and next up? Stars on Ice!

Meryl is pictured below at the Figure Skating in Harlem event in NYC with Alex and Maia Shibutani, Nathan Chen and Ashley Wagner.

Figure Skater Gracie Gold Left Off World Team Roster; Thinks She Should Be On It

Figure Skater Gracie Gold Left Off World Team Roster; Thinks She Should Be On It

We won’t be seeing Gracie Gold‘s face in any of the world figure skating competitions this season.

After placing 6th at the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships this weekend, Gracie has been picked as the 2nd alternate on both the Worlds and Four Continents teams, behind 4th place finisher Mirai Nagasu.

New ladies’ champ Karen Chen, Ashley Wagner and Mariah Bell will rep the US at both competitions.

“Obviously I had a very terrible long program and I didn’t place very well and I got a low score,” Gracie said after her long program.

“It’s just something about this year, I’ve been in a funk. I’m glad this is not the Olympic year.”

However, she still thinks she should be on the world team roster.

“Even though today’s skating was subpar, there’s not a doubt in my mind that this has been a rough season, but that I’m still pretty much one of the best skaters in the United States and in the world. … All I know is that, given the opportunity, I wouldn’t let them down and I think that I would be a very wise pick for the world team.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Should Gracie be on the world teams?

JJJ Update: Gracie has just split with her longtime coach, Frank Carroll. He was also the coach for Michelle Kwan, Evan Lysacek, Mirai Nagasu and currently coaches 2014 Mens’ Bronze Medalist Denis Ten.

Figure Skater Ashley Wagner Fights Back at Ageism Like A Boss

Figure Skater Ashley Wagner Fights Back at Ageism Like A Boss

Let’s get real here — Ashley Wagner is one of the greatest figure skaters in the United States right now. We’ll go as far to say that she IS the greatest.

When you have three national titles, and are the current US National Silver Medalist, you can definitely say that you are on the top — so why is Ashley having to still answer questions about her age in this sport?

“I’m so sick of hearing about my age,” she shared during a press conference during the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships this weekend. “I’m so sick of it.”

She’s 25, which for some, is considered old in the sport of figure skating. But it shouldn’t be. It should be fierce, and amazing, and magnifying.

Ashley added, “You guys, if anyone asks me one more question about my age, I’ll just stop talking to them. It’s ridiculous.”

This isn’t the first time age has come up for women, especially, in sports. Ashley has fought back numerous times and even Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas tackled it when they were selected for the Final Five Gymnastics team for Rio.

“When a football player wins a Super Bowl, no one asks them why they come back. When the swimmers win, they don’t ask them,” Aly said then. “With gymnastics they always say it can’t be done but Gabby and I are trying to disprove that…I think you have to be a little crazy. Me and Gabby are a little bit nuts.”

The 17-year-old skater bested both Mirai Nagasu and Ashley Wagner in the short dance, as well as Gracie Gold and new to senior level, Tessa Hong.

“My body’s still trembling right now,” she told press afterwards. “I just kept pushing and telling myself that I’m gaining more experience, I’m learning about everything in the process and I’m just going to keep getting better.”


The ladie’s long program event will be on Saturday, January 21st.

Ashley Wagner Puts Support Behind Gracie Gold After Skate America 2016

Ashley Wagner Puts Support Behind Gracie Gold After Skate America 2016

Ashley Wagner just gave an example of true sportsmanship.

Just after being crowned the 2016 Skate America champ, with Mariah Bell in 2nd and Japan’s Mai Mihara in 3rd, Ashley spoke about Gracie Gold, who placed in 5th overall.

“We just need to adjust my physical shape and mental shape to see if the program can be salvaged for the rest of the year,” Gracie shared with press after the program. “It’s just something I’ve struggled with this whole year and in previous seasons. It’s just difficult when you’re trying to do the difficult triple jumps. It’s something that I am addressing but it’s obviously not where it should be for this caliber of competition.”

“I would have to say every athlete has that one Mount Everest that they have to climb,” Ashley added afterwards. “For me, it was deciding to leave my house and take my skating over for myself. That was my biggest challenge and that’s what turned me into the athlete I am today. For her [Gracie], I think that losing that world title was devastating for her, understandably, because she had it and then the next day, she didn’t. The hardest part about all of this is you see someone struggling and hurting and no one can help her right now except for herself. It’s going to be her having enough and getting herself out of it. I think that we have a very supportive federation and everyone is doing their best to give her the tools that she needs to get through this. But it’s going to come down to her wanting to use them and getting ready to let go.”

Ashley added, “You know, at the end of the day, a person’s a person and you see them in pain, you want to do whatever you can to help out. We’re not very close but I think she’s a sweet girl and I think that she just kind of needs to find a way to push through this. She’s an awesome athlete and I respect her so much for what she is capable of. This is not the end of Gracie, I know that for a fact.”

Ashley Wagner and Gracie Gold serve up sass and class on the ice during the ladies short program at 2016 Progressive Skate America on Friday (October 21) in Chicago, Ill.

The two Olympian figure skaters rank #1 and #3 after the night, ahead of the free dance, which will happen later today.

“I felt so calm and confident going out onto that ice and I didn’t even go over to (coach Rafael Arutunian),” Ashley shared with TeamUSA. “Usually he jokes that I come over and I pray with him, and I didn’t have to go pray with him today. I knew what I was going to do.”
