SOCHI, Russia - No matter where she finishes in the women's competition, Gracie Gold will leave the Sochi Olympics with a couple of sweet souvenirs.
A bronze medal from the team competition. And a picture with Yuna Kim.
Gold is a big fan of the reigning Olympic champ, who sets the gold standard for grace, elegance and monster scores, and she's been wanting a picture with Kim for months. She'd hoped to get one at last year's world championships, but lost her nerve.
Gold said she hoped to get another chance in Sochi, and this time she did it - with an assist from the draw gods. Gold skates in the group after Kim's in Wednesday's short program, so the two passed each other several time at practices this week.
"I finally got a picture with Yuna!!!!" Gold captioned her photo on Instagram, with the hashtag #fangirling.
Not a bad way to start the week.
