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.

Karen Chen is the new ladies national champion!

The 17-year-old figure skater reigned at the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Kansas City, Miss., last night (January 21) for the long program, beating out favorites Ashley Wagner and Mirai Nagasu.

“I’m just in complete shock,” Karen shared after her amazing win. “All of this just came together for me. It was a rough season. I spent the first couple months working out my boot problems and working with a new boot company trying to work out all the kinks. I’m happy with the progress and hope to keep getting better.”

She adds, “I think it’s very exciting. It was definitely one of my goals and this is what I wanted to do when I came here. I’m just so thrilled with how everything went.”

Mariah Bell, who finished 3rd, and Gracie Gold, who finished 6th, are also pictured below.

Gracie Gold Has Her 'Game Face' Ready For 2017 Figure Skating Nationals

Gracie Gold Has Her 'Game Face' Ready For 2017 Figure Skating Nationals

Gracie Gold is ready for that podium.

The 2016 Women’s National Defending Champ is ready for the 2017 US Figure Skating Championships this coming week and ready to keep her title.

“Ready #gamefaceon,” she captioned in a new Instagram post — which is making JJJ so much more excited to watch the programs next week.

“I know that some people have written me off,” Gracie shared in a new interview leading up to the Nationals.

“I’ve kind of fallen back in love with the sport and my programs and most importantly myself. I’m forgiving myself for failing,” she adds.

This past year saw Gracie miss the podium several times in many competitions. Here’s hoping she’s on top!

Ready ? #gamefaceon ????

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.”

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.”
