Is Figure Skater Ashley Wagner the McKayla Maroney of the 2014 Winter Olympics?
US figure skater Ashley Wagner is not impressed.
The Olympic athlete had a very human moment at Sochi when her shocked reaction to a lower-than-expected score was caught on camera.
Wagner made her Olympics debut at the 2014 games to Pink Floyd’s ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond,’ and she looked like a diamond herself. However, her bright smile turned to a look of shock when her score was read.
The skater ended up in 4th place, though her performance at the ladies short program was still was enough to propel Team USA into the finals.
While Wagner’s on-ice performance didn’t score her a medal, she easily wins the gold for the unsanctioned event of looking completely shocked and disappointed after hearing judges’ scores.
So, how does Ashley Wagner’s facial reaction to her scores compare to McKayla Maroney, who looked unimpressed after winning a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics and spawned a meme? You be the judge.
