Maybe it was the last few words she had with her coach Frank Carroll before hitting the ice that helped her out as Gracie Gold offered the Olympic judges a great program. The athlete had some really beautiful footwork. Adding her expressive facial moments on the ice, it seemed that Gold was comfortable and focused during the program. Giving everyone her best program, there was a big cheer from the United States after she finished her program.

Glancing in the stands, Gold’s mom was cheering her daughter on during the big moment in Sochi. The 18-year-old figure skater definitely had some of the biggest cheerleaders of her career in the stands. Even her sister, her number one fan, was cheering her on during the competition.

There has been a lot of talk about Gracie Gold and her time on the ice. While the star did well in the Olympic team figure skating program, there was some concern it might have distracted her for the individual competition. Obviously, that wasn’t a problem for Gracie Gold as she did well!
