Eighteen – year – old Gracie Gold solidified her spot on the U.S. Figure Skating Teaming after coming in first place at the U.S. Championship.
The East Coast born skater moved to Elk Grove to progress as a skater, and previously trained at the Ice Center of DuPage in Glen Ellyn.
Gold came in second place at last year’s championship but has proven she’s grown and matured in her craft since then.
“She is ready to be on the podium. She was ready last year, but this year even more so because she is going as the first place lady, which will help her,” said Gold’s Former Coach, Alex Ouriashev.
Gracie Gold is currently in Los Angeles training with Michelle Kwan’s former coach, Frank Carroll.
