After first learning to skate in the age of TWO, Gold started training officially in second grade. A couple of years after she took silver in the 2012 World Juniors as well as the 2012 Rostelecom Cup. Gold additionally won silver in the 2013 U.S. Nationals. Both of her parents have qualifications in medicine. Her dad, Carl, is an anesthesiologist, while her mom, Denise, is a retired emergency room nurse.
In the age of 5 Gold moved along with her family to Springfield, Illinois, as well as for another several years she did not lace up a pair of skates. “While I circled around and about in my brownish lease skates, I examined a number of skaters whirling in the middle,” she later remembered. “I was fascinated! When my mother picked me up, I started a campaign for skating lessons.” Growing up Gold became an all around athlete who also took up swimming, gymnastics and tennis.
With her sister Carly, also a competitive figure skater, Gold advanced quickly. Eventually, the family moved to Chicago so that the two sisters could train with well known figure skating trainer Alexander Ouriashev. By 2010, Gold had been hailed by figure skating enthusiasts as among the nation ‘s brightest young stars. That year, while skating as a rookie, she finished fourth at the U.S. Championships.
The next season, her first as a junior-level skater, proved unsatisfactory when Gold did not be eligible for the 2011 U.S. Championships. But she returned the following year in full force and got the 2012 U.S. junior title. In addition she took home the silver medal in the World Junior Figure Skating Championship as well as the Rostelecom Cup. She also helped guide the U.S. team to a second-place finish at the World Team Trophy contest. 2014 was a major year for Gold. Gold attends the University of Missouri High School, an on-line high school. She’s said she had like to finally attend school and continue a vocation in the medical area.
