Seriously.Skate America has one of the deepest fields of all the Grand Prix stops this season. I would hate to see Gracie have to go through a second time her experience at the Rostelecom Cup.
To help Gold get back into a competitive mindset, perhaps baby steps with some smaller non-qualifying events first might be the answer.
That is assuming, she wants to return to the sport at the highest level at all.
Her physical training is progressing for sure but what about her mental fitness? That we don't know and it's that part of her that probably needs the most care. I'm not sure throwing her into the spotlight with no competitive run throughs would exactly be chicken soup for the soul for her.
