SPRINGFIELD -- One of Central Illinois' own is competing in this year's Winter Games. Gracie Gold spent five years training as part of the Figure Skating Club at the Nelson Center. Now, she's on USA's figure skating team in Sochi.

All the aspiring skaters on her club are having fun watching and cheering her on from home. They've made posters and held watching parties when she competes.

So far, Gold has helped Team USA bring in the bronze for the figure skating team event. She skates again February 20 in the singles competition.
