Ashley Wagner was on top of her game and when coming off the ice her face said it all. When seeing the judges scores, her face said it all again, but this time it was something altogether different. Wagner's skating was superb, she did the U.S. proud and she knew she did well in her Olympic debut on the ice.
According to Fox News on Feb. 8, when the judges gave her a score of 63.10 points that pride turned to "shock" and "probably some disgust" too. Wagner deserved to wear that proud face for her performance on the ladies short program, but the one she put on after receiving the judges' scores was understandable.
Wagner did a pretty good job at containing herself in front of the millions of viewers at home and the crowds at the Olympic event. After receiving the scores, Wagner said to the media:
"I know roughly when I skate a good program where the score should end up. ... So yeah to score that low was very disappointing for me," she said. "But honestly this performance was more for myself and mentally getting beyond this past couple of weeks. And I wanted to do everything I could to help out the team, and I really feel that I delivered on that part.''
