GRACIE GOLD GETTING HELP

I think this is good news for Gracie. I hope professional treatment helps get her to a place where she can enjoy skating again and be a competitive force in ladies skating.

Gracie had mentioned that she didn't plan on competing beyond this (Olympic) year. IIRC, I read this before 2016 Worlds.

I'd very surprised to see Gracie back in competitive (physical and more importantly, mental) by 2018 US Nationals, much less contend for a ticket to Pyeongchang. She's easily one of the most naturally talented jumpers/skaters among the ladies ever, but varying reports have it that as late as the USFSA's Champs' Camp, Gracie was still landing only doubles. I guess we'll see.

Your thoughts...

I just wish she had taken this step at this time LAST YEAR. If this is really her last year of competition, it could be too late to make a difference, and if so it is a tremendous waste of a huge talent.

Gracie has withdrawn from her GP events. I hope she gets all the help she needs to skate competitively again one day. Article below:

I guess the USA will lose both her GP slots in China and France?
