This is a big deal, you guys, because nobody has nabbed two national figure skating titles in a row… since Michelle Kwan in 2005!!
Ashley Wagner has just matched that!! She clinched the win in Omaha, and she's so good that she won it in spite of two falls! Daaaamn, girl!
There are a few questions lingering, though:
1. While she has two in a row that matches Kwan, will she continue to match Kwan up until the EIGHT IN A ROW she won??
2. Will 17 year old newcomer Gracie Gold, especially with a name like that, ruin her streak??
We ask that question because in reality, she won the second title by only two points! That's IN-SANE!
Gold, who finished with a total score of 186.5 (to Ashley's 188.84), had 'both the performance and the move of the night.'
She ended up getting the second highest free skate score in U.S. Championship history by completing a perfect triple-flip, triple-toe combination. We're not even sure the human body can techncally handle those things!
