    • Mental Health

Gracie Gold's story is one of the most powerful stories in figure skating. After winning the bronze medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympic games and being regarded as America’s golden girl, Gracie hit rock bottom spiraling into a painful battle with an eating disorder, and depression. At this point in her life, Gracie did not think she would ever return to skating. Gracie takes us through her journey with mental health and how she ultimately recovered, which led her to speak out about her struggles and find her way back on the ice and hopefully to the next Olympic games. Gracie was most recently featured in Michael Phelps’ powerful documentary, “The Weight of Gold,” which features a variety of olympians who have struggled with mental health. Gracie most famously said, "America loves three stories: America loves a comeback story, America loves an underdog story, and America loves the fall of a hero. I am all three.”
