You Won't See Mirai Nagasu, Gracie Gold or Shib Sibs at the Figure Skating Championships

We’re so bummed that while watching the 2019 U.S. Figure Skating Championships this weekend, we won’t be watching some of our fave skaters on the ice.

Mirai Nagasu, Gracie Gold and Karen Chen, as well as Maia and Alex Shibutani won’t be competing this year.

The ShibSibs announced last year that they had taken the year off of competing. Currently, they’re gearing up for the upcoming Stars on Ice tour.

For Mirai, she’s nursing an injury that resulted from practicing her triple Axel.

“I tore my labrum,” she shared. “I had bone fragments floating in my hip.”

Mirai Nagasu Reflects on Her Olympic Figure Skating Journey

Mirai Nagasu Reflects on Her Olympic Figure Skating Journey

The figure skater took to Instagram on Saturday (January 5) to reflect.

“In 2014, I was left off the Olympic team which was a decision that left me devastated and heartbroken,” she captioned the slideshow below. “I found myself in a place of anger, confusion, and most terrifyingly, self-deprecation.”

“In making the decision to continue to compete, I decided that I was going to give my career the effort that I thought I needed to to make another team and then some, which to me, at the time, meant learning a new jump,” she continued. “I wanted to become a skater to whom the selection committee couldn’t say no.”

“In 2016, I started to experience excruciating pains in my hip that reached all the way down my leg that at one point, didn’t allow me to straighten my knee,” she wrote. “As an athlete in a sport that takes constant falls, pain isn’t an abnormality, so I thought that the pain would eventually go away. It did not and eventually, I found out that I had torn my labrum and had fractured part of my hip socket in the process of learning the triple axel. In that year, I was given two options: get surgery to repair it or try PRP. I was told that there was a high chance that I could repair my labrum with PRP if enough scar tissue would form in the socket.”

Mirai Nagasu Opens Up About Denis Ten's Death: 'It Really Hurts Deeply'

The figure skating community was rocked this week after Olympic medalist Denis Ten was killed in a robbery in Kazakhstan.

JJJ got the chance to speak with Mirai Nagasu at Kids’ Choice Sports 2018 about Denis‘s passing and learned how she’s treating life from now on.

“Today in our skating community a close friend of mine passed away, he was actually murdered,” Mirai told us.

“It’s really crazy. I’m still at the age where we’re really young and really youthful and we think about the future a lot,” she added.

“To see that cut short for someone who was so talented and to have known him personally it really hurts deeply because it wasn’t something any of us were expecting.”

Now, Mirai is treating every day like it’s a treasure.

“I think today, every day is a gift. Today I’m really appreciative for my life, for my friends, for my family, just to be here. I take it one day at a time.”
