Biography:

Gracie Gold is an 18 year old American figure skater who recently won the 2014 United States National Championships to earn a spot on the U.S. team headed to Sochi, Russia to compete in this year’s Winter Olympic Games. Since the triumphs of Michelle Kwan and Sarah Hughes, the U.S. Women’s Figure Skating team has struggled and failed to make the podium at the 2010 Winter Games for the first time since 1964. After Gracie’s win at nationals she was the 7th most searched term on Google and is primed to become the next face of U.S. Olympic figure skating. Her performance also landed her on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno where she discussed her journey to the Olympics and demonstrated some juggling skills she says helps sharpen her focus before hitting the ice at a competition.

Olympic Sports Speaker Gracie got her first taste of championship skating at just 15 years old when she placed 4th on the novice level at the 2010 U.S. National Championships. The following season on the junior level was a learning experience for Gracie after placing 6th at the sectional tournament and failed to qualify for the national championships. She would come roaring back in 2012 to win a gold medal in her first international competition at the Junior Grand Prix and another gold medal at the Junior National Championships. Her total points in the Junior National competition are the highest by a junior ever in the event at 178.92. At her first senior U.S. Championships she won an impressive silver medal after placing 1st in the free skate portion of the competition, and in late 2013 she began working with renowned coach Frank Carroll who also coached figure skating legends Michelle Kwan and Evan Lysacek.

Gracie’s push to become the next face of the United States Winter Olympic team has landed her on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Olympic Preview edition. Gracie, along with 6 other Olympians headed to Sochi were highlighted in a documentary on NBC titled How to Raise an Olympian that aired in the days leading up to the 2014 Olympic Games.
