Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You started doing skating at a very young age and won a silver medal at the 2012 World Junior Championship. You reached the pinnacle of success by becoming a two-time U.S. national champion – 2014 and 2016. Walk us through this spectacular journey and tell us how it all began?
Ms. Gracie Gold:
I started skating when I was 8 years old. I went to my friend’s birthday party at the local ice rink in Springfield, MO. After opening presents and eating cake we hopped on the ice for a public skating session. It was my first time skating and I was in love! I signed up for learn-to-skate lessons that day and the rest is history 🙂
