Figure Skater Ashley Wagner Makes USA Team Over Mirai Nagasu

Ashley Wagner is now a member of Team USA for the 2014 Olympics after finishing in fourth place at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships!

The 22-year-old figure skater was put on the team over Mirai Nagasu, who won the bronze medal after placing third during the championships, which is not the Olympic Trials.

“It’s been a long 4 years to this point. I’m so proud and incredibly grateful that I’ll be representing my country at the Olympics in Sochi!” Ashley tweeted after the announcement.

Mirai shared in a statement, “I’m disappointed in the decision. Though I may not agree with it, I have to respect the decision the federation made. And I’m grateful to everyone who has supported me and look forward to what comes next in my skating career.”

FYI: The US Figure Skating takes into account the past three years of competitions before making their selections for the USA Team.
