The appropriately named Gracie Gold took home first place at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Jan. 11, so before she laces up and steals your hearts at the Sochi Winter Olympics in February, here are the things you need to know about her.

With a last name like Gracie Gold‘s, it’s clear that she’s destined for great things. The 18-year-old became a frontrunner for a medal at the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics when she won first place at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Jan. 11, and trust us, she’s a lot more than a flashy name and some double axels.

Gracie Gold: 5 Things To Know About The Figure Skater

So allow us to introduce you to the girl who has a great chance of becoming the darling of the Winter Games.

1. She’s Not The Only Gold Skater

Gracie Gold Takes The Ice

Gracie was born 40 minutes after her twin sister, Carly, who is also a competitive figure skater. Think Gracie has a chip on her shoulder for being younger?

2. Skating Isn’t Her Only Talent

Before the young skater takes the ice, she juggles to calm her nerves, according to Ice Network.

3. The Golds Are Medically Inclined

Gracie has expressed interest in becoming a physician after her skating career is over, and it’s no wonder why. Her mother Denise, is an ER nurse and her father Carl, is an anesthesiologist.

4. She’s A Cali Girl Now

Gracie is originally from Newton, Mass., but she recently moved to Los Angeles to soak up the sun and continue her training. Her favorite part of Cali living? Hearing the ocean as she falls asleep.

5. She’s A Bit Of An Animal Person

Not only does Gracie frequently post random pictures of animals on her Twitter, but she also has an adorable little dog, who she sometimes has to feed Reddi-wip. (Just click here to see what I mean.)

So HollywoodLifers, are you in love with Gracie yet? If not, just wait until she storms Sochi when the Winter Olympics kick off on Feb. 6.

Especially so when she falls on her obnoxious cocky a$$ in the Olympics!
Stunning? She’s ugly inside and out…can”t she afford a good dye job and get rid of the orange hair? And those yellow teeth against that horrid red lipstick! And the heavy upper eyelids..she’s ugly and can’t wait to see her fall again!
