    Gracie Gold

    Grace Elizabeth Gold, born August 17, 1995, known as Gracie Gold, is an American figure skater. Gold is the 2014 and 2016 US Ladies Champion.

    OCTOBER 2015 UPDATE BY Alex D



    Biography & Skating style:

    Born in Newton, Massachusetts, Gracie picked up the skating boots at the age of eight, when she began training with Amy Vorhaben and Max Liu before switching to work with Alexia Griffin. Over the years she was coached by the likes of Susan Liss, Toni Hickey and until August 2013 Alex Ourashiev. After being trained by Marina Zueva and Oleg Epstein for a short time, Gold started working with a new permanent coach, Frank Carroll, who already helped Michelle Kwan to four World Championships and a silver medal at the Olympics in Nagano.

    Gracie who first competed in pairs with Sean Hickey, is capable of landing all triples, except the Axel. Said element, however, seems to be back on schedule, after already being practiced and landed in 2011, back then however, with the help of a pole harness.
    Throughout the years, Gracie impressed with her speed, the positive attitude and graceful spins, but also her huge heart. The Bronze medalist of Sochi in the team event, won the US National title in 2014 with a new Short Program record of 72.12 and combined total of 211.69, something no other US lady had ever done before.

    Besides also winning the Grand Prix at NHK later that year and scoring good results at Worlds, Gold has to face a lot of negativity and pressure in her home country, where only the gold medal seems to count. Gracie, however, also shines when she doesn't win, her gracious attitude on and off the ice is a real gift to the Figure Skating Community and surely a great motivation to all the kids out there.

    I've been rooting for this girl for a good while, and now that she has her foot firmly planted in the Olympic door, I think that she deserves some GS lovin'.

    So, fire away.

    Ah, I thought she already had a thread here

    Zijun and Gracie, so far, are the only skaters that I'm actually looking forward to watch after Sochi(or 2013-2014 season). Now, if Gracie becomes more artistic and consistent, she's most likely to be dominating the next quad

    Does she? I've been looking for one, but was befuddled when I couldn't find anything.

    I agree that the next quad is Gracie's to win (or lose, depending on how she handles it). Technically, she's too strong for any of the current younger ladies to surpass. All she needs is a greater connection to the music, and she's the US' most complete skater since Michelle. Gracie Gold for 2014 US champion! It would certainly give her a reputation boost headed into Sochi...

    Gracie has had several huge threads on the Edge, but no one had started a fan page.

    In the spirit of Champs Camp, I'm bringing this thread back into the spotlight!

    Both Lynn Rutherford and the USFSA have posted backstage pictures of Gracie at the event. Her SP dress is really gorgeous -- a mostly black number with a sparkly, irregular white pattern over one shoulder.

    She looks to be in excellent shape.

    ^Other than in color, not really. Yuna's dress had a collar, was covered in shiny geometric patterns, and was much sexier, IMO, than what Gracie is going for with Gershwin (jazzy and fun).

    I liked the little barrett or whatever it was, engineered to match the SP dress A lovely performance, but I really miss the power of her jumps where they seemed to go half way across the rink. (But I do prefer she land them; Frank is doing a good job.)

    Thumbs up

    I'm checking in and joining the Gracie Gold bandwagon. I became a Gold fan watching her compete the 2013 US Nats.
    She is all around good and has a bit of "it factor". and yes, easy on the eyes. Glad to see I'm not the only one.
