    If they wanted to be the subject of public discussions, they would make public announcenents.

    2012 (she got more muscular!)

    Yeah, but I'm pretty sure in real life Ashley looks tiny. She may have a more muscular frame than some skaters, but compared to the average person she's nowhere near thick. And literally 1 percent of the population would look good in a direct candid shot from behind when wearing a teensy thong bathing suit.
    Some skaters, due to their body type, have to maintain a fine line between staying fit and becoming too muscular/bulky. I bet once she's no longer competing she'd look more curvy (in a good way)
    Wow- Michelle looks amazing! What a great body! My husband finds her by far the most attractive skater ever.

    He finds Ashley much "hotter" than Gracie. He and my two sons agree that Gracie is technically beautiful, but her thin lips and pursed, tight expression (and skating) are not attractive to them.

    My younger son has a huge crush on Meryl. He just adores her. We loved her on Dancing with the Stars and he was fascinated to learn that she is dyslexic like he is.

    Most beautiful female skaters ever to me are Michelle K, Katia G, Tanith B, Katerina W, Elena B, Chen Lu, and Elizabeth Punsalan.

    In any case, one person's sexuality had nothing to do with the thread topic.

    also Gracie has been nominated in Nickelodeons Kid's Award for best Athlete of the year
    the only female winter sports Olympian

    Sounds about right. Which part of Hollywood is Nickelodeon in again?

    While she should be lauded for being nominated to win a kid's award, technically Gold is the only female winter sports Olympian, just because fellow nominee Lindsey Vonn was too injured to compete in Sochi. Vonn's past two seasons in her sport have been far more illustrious, even with the injury (she racked up 6 World Cup wins last season). Gold... well, at least she has her US title, if no other win.

    Just for grins, a photo of Gracie Gold as a kid (pre-teen skater) herself:

    (Two good-natured reply tweets from GG indicate that she is the young girl in the photo.)

    This isn't just "Gracie on Memorial Day", that's Gracie at the Indy 500 - an event far older, greater, more glamorous and famous than Gracie could ever hope to be.

    The people in the background are probably wondering, "who is that girl with the Olympic medal?"

    Um…the western part? The award show will be held in Westwood, a Los Angeles neighborhood bordering on West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Sunset Boulevard is the northern boundary (swimming pools, movie stars, Texas tea )

    While she should be lauded for being nominated to win a kid's award, technically Gold is the only female winter sports Olympian, just because fellow nominee Lindsey Vonn was too injured to compete in Sochi.

    Well, you can go on the Nick website and campaign against her, but this is the Kid's Choice, not ours. Danica Patrick won the last two years. Michelle Kwan is also a two-time winner, 2002 and 2003.

    By the way, this is the first time that there is a separate Kids' Sport Award show, separate from the Kid's Choice vote for actors, favorite singers, etc. Linsey Vonn is up for two other awards besides best female athlete.

    And not only does she have an Olympic medal (thank you, Meryl and Charlie), but she was feted and photographed on the Red carpet and got to ride in a race car at 170 miles per hour.

    Well, Gracie skated well and gave her all too - I am happy enough that she earned that medal. Everyone on that team did. Everyone but one.

    Lucky girl got to ride with The King.

    Do they really need a separate sports show? The original show was fluffy enough
