Ashley Wagner Makes Another Viral Face Over Her Skating Score

By Alexandra Ward   |   Thursday, 20 Feb 2014 07:15 AM

Figure skater Ashley Wagner should have learned to control her reactions to her scores after her disapproving scowl went viral last week, but the 22-year-old American's expression made headlines again after Wednesday night's short program.

Wagner's face rivaled that of U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney — who was infamously "not impressed" with her silver medal finish at the 2012 London Olympics — last week when she scored a 63.10 for her performance in the team skating event.

"I know roughly when I skate a good program where the score should end up," Wagner told reporters after seeing her numbers. "So yeah to score that low was very disappointing for me. But honestly this performance was more for myself and mentally getting beyond this past couple of weeks. And I wanted to do everything I could to help out the team, and I really feel that I delivered on that part.''

So all eyes were on Wagner Wednesday after she finished her short program skate to Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and went to the sidelines to wait for her score. When her mark of 64.21 popped up, the skater furrowed her brow and appeared to mouth to her coach, "How is that higher than my other score?"


Wagner currently sits in sixth place, nearly 10 points behind leader Yuna Kim of South Korea. She is slated to skate the long program Thursday night.
