Gracie Gold lives up to her name as she stuns last night’s crowd with her gutsy performance at the United States figure skating national championships, according to NBC Sports. 

She burst onto the figure skating scene as a teenage skating prodigy in 2014, known by her red lipstick and characteristic blonde bun that was as bright as her effervescent personality, but her Olympic dreams faded three years later as she slipped into severe depression and an eating disorder in a dark Michigan winter, according to 2019 New York Times report

“I was suicidal for months,” Gold told the Times, adding, “If I had just continued the way I was in Detroit, I’d probably be dead.” 

Isolated, she slept for 24 hours at a time, then stayed awake for three consecutive nights, noting she kept her lights off so much that her electric bill was not even $20 one month, imaging if she took her life that nobody would even know until her landlord would collect the overdue rent, according to The Times

The two-time U.S. national champion and 2014 Olympic bronze medalist entered mental health treatment in 2017, missed the 2018 and 2019 national championships, and struggled just to qualify for the last three seasons, according to NBC Sports.

Gracie Gold Career

In 2016, Gracie Gold became America’s golden girl once again, claiming her second U.S. Championship in commanding fashion. A fierce competitor and one of the top jumpers in the world, Gracie came to St. Paul, Minnesota, determined to reclaim the championship title. Using dramatic music to Stravinsky’s “Firebird,” Gracie took control of the ice and the audience to win one of the most coveted prizes in skating — the U.S. gold medal. Wearing a red dress with flames on the sleeves, Gracie skated with fire in her eyes. From start to finish, she had indeed become “Firebird.” Her confident rendition of the program and glowing smile afterward resonated with fans around the world.

“I am just over the moon,” Gracie said afterward. “To win another U.S. title means so much to me. It feels good that all of my hard work paid off.”

For Gracie, the climb back to the top has been a tough road, with many ups and some setbacks. She has proven that when she skates her best, she is nearly unbeatable.

Gracie made her mark on the senior skating scene back in 2013 when she made her senior debut at the U.S. Championships. There, she rallied from a ninth-place finish in the short program to win the silver medal. The victory earned her a spot on the 2013 World Team and put her into the mix as one of the top U.S. contenders for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

She went on to win a pressure-packed 2014 U.S. Championships in Boston, right near her birthplace of Newton, Massachusetts. Gracie set three personal-best scores (short, free skate and overall) at the 2014 U.S. Championships, and secured her place on the 2014 Olympic Team by winning her first national title.

At the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Gracie along with other members of Team USA won the Olympic Bronze medal in the first-ever Team event. In the individual ladies competition, Gracie placed fourth, an impressive Olympic debut.

Now a seasoned competitor who has represented Team USA at four World Championships (finishing fourth twice), Gracie has her sights set on the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea.

“She’s a gorgeous girl,” said Frank Carroll, who has coached Gracie since the fall of 2013. “She looks like Grace Kelly. She has star quality.” Gracie says that in addition to admiring Grace Kelly for her “timeless beauty,” she also is inspired by actress Jennifer Lawrence and is a huge fan of singer Taylor Swift for her talent, beauty and style.

Gracie enjoys spending time with her twin sister, Carly, who is also a competitive skater and skilled photographer, and their three dogs; Yoshi, Dory and Luna. An avid reader, Gracie is a fan the Harry Potter book series. She also loves to cook and can often be found at local farmers’ markets searching for just the right ingredients for her next recipe.

Gracie was nominated for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Award for “Best Female Athlete,” and the Los Angeles Sports Council selected Gracie as its L.A. Sportswoman of the Year in January 2015.

Gracie has attracted corporate interest and is supported by Nike, EDEA and John Wilson Blades. Additional sponsors have included; Visa, United, P&G, Smucker’s, Pandora (Jewelry) and Airweave. During the 2014 Olympics, she was featured in television commercials for United Airlines & Visa. In the winter of 2014, Gracie was also featured in Nike’s “Choose Your Winter” television campaign.
