    Oh no! Isn't the Sports Illustrated cover supposed to be jinxed?

    Seriously, this is beyond cool. Good for Gracie.

    Looks like a version of a stag jump to me.

    Gracie has many competitors who can beat her, but Meryl & Charlie don't. V&M haven't been able to catch up to them all season.

    i wouldn't worry though I wouldn't mind seeing D and W get silver; I really like V and M's long program now. Though it would be nice for D and W to get a gold I really think the Canadians deserve it technically and artistically.

    I prefer the Canadians too... Although I'm not a fan of their free. I think though they are more of what ice dance should be.

    Amber Glenn also is getting recognition from SI. The U.S. junior champion was chosen for its Faces in the Crowd section.

    Ahhh yes, did anyone watch her performance from nationals. Her overall score beat Gracie's score from 2012.

    Shaun White, The U.S Women's gymnastics team "The Fierce Five", LeBron James, Lindsey Vonn were on the cover before the Olympics and well... they were really really successful post-magazine cover! the gymnastics team was the most successful at London 2012, James won the Championships and White and Vonn were Olympic Champion so I don't believe in that jink, I'm not superstitious LOL in any case She's on the cover She already won at life.

    Go Gracie! It's been a long time since we have had a skater in the US who is technically on par with the best in the world.

    Mathman, I hope you haven't forgotten our wager. I think you're probably safe for 2014, but I'm determined to collect eventually.

    Ahhhh, that six-pack is going to taste sweet in 2018. (Message to Gracie: you better come through for me, and prove that mean old Mathman wrong!!! )

    Not raining on Gold's parade, but to be more precise:
    She is not on THE cover of SI this week; she is on A cover of SI this week (#3 of four different ones). Still a big deal for her agent and for her.

    This week's issue of Sports Illustrated features four unique covers to preview the Sochi Olympics. U.S. Winter Olympians Mikaela Shiffrin, Gracie Gold and Bode Miller each grace a cover while Arielle Gold and Jamie Anderson share the fourth cover. The athletes' stories and ages range from the 18-year-old Shiffrin making her Olympic debut and chasing the legacy of Lindsey Vonn to the 36-year-old Miller back for his fifth Olympic Games and seeking the record for most Winter Olympics medals by an American. This is the first time SI has utilized four national covers for its Olympic Preview.

    Or to see the other three covers individually:

    #1: Mikaela Shiffrin (aka the next Lindsey Vonn)

    #2: Arielle Gold and Jamie Anderson (snowboarders)

    #4: Bode Miller
