Wtf is Kimmie at these games also? Anyways saw Ashley and Adelina going to the official practice this morning along with Haejin and Soyoun.
Yeah I thought that was so sweet and cool of slope-style skier, Joss Christensen, to not just lament about the poor stray dogs, but to actually do something to try and help them. He certainly won me over with his talent and his humanity. Cool that he and Gracie are hanging out at the Olympics.
BTW, in the pic you posted, adding to our previous exchange on another thread, Yuna and Gracie are pretty similar in height, and Gracie is 5' 6" (168 cm), according to Wiki.
EDIT: I can see why Yuna is a role model for Gracie, from a skating point of view. If Gracie can maintain the consistency of her jumps (and also improve on ease and polish of technique) plus continue to grow in the artistic aspects, a la Yuna, then the sky is the limit for her going forward.

I love all of those Olympic pins she's got, cute. ^and ITA, best ever in the biz even.
Good luck tomorrow Gracie I wish you all the luck and may you land on the podium!!! Good job getting to 4th today!!
Great job from Gracie to battle through and land her jumps. Gracie from last season, heck, Gracie from earlier in the fall would have splatted a couple times. She's really strengthened her mental game and I love it.
Gracie is going to medal, along with Carolina and Yuna. I think it would be the tallest podium ever.
Hey new user here!
So glad to see people who also love Gracie
She gets a lot of unnecessary hate because people think she's cold and snobby when she really is just tightly wound and confidant. It's nice to see a female athlete who is unafraid to say what she's good at. People often forget that she acknowledges her faults and tries really hard to correct them too. I mean look at the improvement a couple months has made!
I think she has a pretty good shot at podium right now. Her ability to keep her head in the game and deliver is seeming to be stronger than the two currently above her to put it lightly.
