Figure skater Ashley Wagner, who calls the Northwest her home, will be one of the bright stars for the USA.
“I have a laid-back attitude going into this Olympic Games, and it’s because that’s what works,” Wagner said. “I am hungry. I know what I want to do. I know what I want to accomplish, but I need to just stay relaxed and stay focused.”
Wagner helped her team to a bronze finish in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
She was also the first woman to win back-to-back U.S. championships in 2012-13 and three total U.S. titles in 2012-13 and 2015 since Michelle Kwan in 2005.
