Gracie Gold balances skating and juggling

The countdown to Sochi is now less than 14 days away. And one of the marquee events at the Winter Olympic Games is always figure skating.

Make sure you keep an eye out for this young lady. Gracie Gold just won gold the U.S. Championships. The 18-year old lives and trains in L.A.
