Ashley Wagner Wins Gold at Trophee Eric Bompard

Ashley Wagner shows off her gold medal during the 2013 Trophee Eric Bompard ISU Grand Prix held at the Palais Omnisports de Bercy on Saturday night (November 16) in Paris, France.

The 22-year-old Olympic hopeful earned 194.37 points, ahead of Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova and Anna Pogorilaya.

Team USA teammates Samantha Cesario and Christina Gao (pictured below) placed 4th and 8th, respectively.

“A clean program will do a lot, but it will not win the Olympics,” Ashley recently shared about her plan to place at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. “And it most likely will not get me onto the Olympic podium. I, myself, don’t think I’m talented enough to get on the podium without a triple-triple. I’m just trying to be as realistic about the triple-triple as I possibly can be.”

“I was happy that I really went for everything,” Gracie told press after her program. “I made them (the jumps) happen. I didn’t just let the triples happen. Often I’m a little bit tentative, especially in the short program. In practice, I had doubled some jumps in run-throughs, so we made a pact to go out there and commit myself to every element.”

Gracie Gold & Christina Gao: ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Japan

Gracie Gold, Christina Gao and Agnes Zawadzki take over the ice at the 2013 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships held at Osaka Municipal Central Gymnasium on Sunday (February 10) in Osaka, Japan.

The three Team USA Olympic hopefuls showed off their skills with a short skate on Saturday (February 9) and a free skate.

Christina, 18, placed fourth overall, just after Japan’s Mao Asada, Akiko Suzuki and Kanako Murakami. Gracie, 17, took the sixth place spot.

“It wasn’t a very good performance,” Gracie shared with press after her performance. “I have a lot of time to prepare for worlds and think I will give a much better performance at worlds. I was nervous for my skate and was shaky on my practices. I wasn’t at the top of my game.”
